Bexar County deputies arrested 18-year-olds Michael Aguilar and Charles Robnett for the murder of Gary Barnhardt, the victim who died after being shot four times in the chest near a Northeast Side H-E-B just after 1 a.m. on Monday.

Aguilar had agreed to meet with Barnhardt and Albert Ramirez, the other passenger in the car who received a gunshot wound to the hand, to purchase marijuana, according to the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office.

After Ramirez handed Aguilar the weed, Ramirez saw Robnett pointing a gun at Barnhardt before he began to shoot. Robnett and Aguilar fled, and Ramirez managed to drive the car to a nearby H-E-B, where he called the police. Barnhardt died a few hours later.

Aguilar is facing a murder charge, and Robnett was charged with murder and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
