A third suspect wanted in connection with a deadly shooting at a Halloween weekend house party in Covina turned himself in to authorities at the U.S.-Mexico border Thursday, leaving no other suspects at large.

Joel Daniel Garcia, 19, surrendered around 11:35 a.m. to U.S. Customs and Border Protection at Otay Mesa in San Diego, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

Two other suspects, 18-year-old Adrian Joseph Robles and 19-year-old Brian Thomas Ramos, turned themselves in Saturday, deputies said.


The shooting Oct. 30 left two men dead and two others wounded. Deputies responding to a call around 12:24 a.m. in the 17000 block of East Bellbrook Avenue found four men with gunshot wounds.

Nikki Hubbard was one of 11 counterprotesters charged in the case, believed to be the first time prosecutors filed conspiracy charges against an anti-fascist group in the U.S.
