22-year-old Alejandro Garcia of Corpus Christi, Texas, will spend the next 15 to 30 years in prison after pleading guilty to the 2007 shooting death of his younger cousin over whose turn it was to play Scarface: The World is Yours.
Garcia and his then 17-year-old cousin George Flores were taking turns playing Scarface: The World is Yours, Radical Entertainment’s video game sequel to the classic 1983 film in which Al Pacino stars as a Cuban refugee turned drug kingpin with a vicious violent streak.
The cousins and at least two other teens were reportedly smoking marijuana, drinking, and playing the game when an argument started over whose turn it was to play. The argument ended with Flores shot in the head at close range.
Garcia surrendered to authorities in June, nearly three years after the incident occurred.
Yesterday Garcia plead guilty to the shooting. A plea bargain earned him 30 years in prison, with a possibility of parole after 15.
