EL PASO (1080 KRLD) - Nearly nine months after being gravely wounded in the El Paso Walmart mass murder, Guillermo Garcia has died.

Garcia is the 23rd victim killed in the August 3rd shooting.

Garcia was at the Walmart that day to help raise funds for his daughter's soccer team. His wife was also shot but has recovered from her leg wound. 

Garcia's family is among the victims suing Walmart claiming a lack of security. Patrick Crusius, the Allen man accused of driving across the state to shoot up that Walmart, remains locked up on nearly 100 counts that include weapons charges and federal hate crimes
