Spring Hill Police released the 911 call and the name of the victim from the August 3 shooting at the Port Royal Burger King.
At 8:05 p.m. on Aug. 3, the Spring Hill Police Department was dispatched to Burger King at 4883 Port Royal Road in response to a shooting.
Several people can be heard on the 911 call. It was made after 19-year-old Antares Heller Garcia came in and shot fellow Burger King employee Hakeem Patrick several times with a .25 caliber handgun, according to Spring Hill Police. Patrick, 35, has since been released from the hospital and is “home resting, doing well,” Spring Hill Public Information Officer Lt. Justin Whitwell said.
Two people, from Burger King, talk on the call – an employee who identifies herself as the shooter’s girlfriend and a male “affiliated with the general manager,” Spring Hill Police said.
“He came in to get a drink and hopped over the counter and shot my employee,” the man says on the call.
He says that “Casper,” Garcia’s nickname, ran out after the shooting.
The female employee, who does not say her. name, says several things on the call that had not been previously reported by the Williamson Source, including:
-A doctor was in the drive-through, who came in and helped the victim. (Spring Hill Police said there was a man in a suit seen on video who came into the restaurant but that he was gone before they arrived.)
-She says that the victim was shot 4 times, “in the arm and chest” but he “is breathing.”
“I know he’s had some issues at work because he’s my boyfriend and I don’t know. He just came in and saw someone, he’s never acted like that before,” she says on the call.
Patrick was transported via LifeFlight to Vanderbilt University Medical Center in stable condition. Officers were advised the shooter had left the scene on foot heading south toward Reserve Boulevard.
Officers later apprehended the suspect, 19-year-old Antares Heller Garcia, on Reserve Boulevard.
He is in Maury County Jail with a $2 million bond, charged with Attempted Murder, Aggravated Assault and Reckless Endangerment. Garcia resides in Spring Hill.
