Planned Robbery During Drug Deal Results in Murder of a Teenager
According to reports from FOX 4 News, Camacho met with C. Sterkes to buy “less than an ounce of marijuana.” He was accompanied by 17-year-old M. Hernandez, 18-year-old M. Garcia, and an unnamed juvenile during the drug deal. The group was planning to rob Sterkes, who brandished a gun while all of the involved individuals were sitting in Garcia’s car. After the others pushed him out, Sterkes began firing at the car as it drove away, shooting Camacho in the process.
Camacho was pronounced dead at the Medical City McKinney hospital in McKinney, Texas. He was driven there by Garcia following the shooting incident with a gunshot wound to the chest.
McKinney police found Camacho at the hospital and notified the Anna Police Department, who arrested Sterkes for the murder. He was taken to the Collin County jail in McKinney following his arrest and assigned a $500,000 bond.
Hernandez, Garcia, and the other juvenile were charged with robbery.
