Correction: Misidentification of Texas Mass Shooter’s Photograph

We deeply regret the misidentification of the photograph associated with the Texas mass shooter and offer our sincerest apologies to the affected individuals, their families, and the community at large. It has come to our attention that the photo widely circulated, including by our organization and various mainstream media outlets, was not the mugshot of Mauricio Garcia, the individual responsible for the tragic incident resulting in the loss of eight lives.

The photograph attached here is not the photograph of the May 6, 2023, Texas Mass Shooter. It has been brought to our attention that this individual is a decent human being with no connection to any crime.

We value the trust and confidence placed in our organization, and we are committed to rebuilding and maintaining it through our continued dedication to accuracy.

Once again, we express our deepest apologies for this error and the negative consequences it may have had. We remain resolute in our commitment to providing reliable information to our readers, and we will work diligently to prevent any such errors in the future.
