Metro Police say 34-year-old Pedro Garcia called 911 after shooting a man at Starbucks on Sunday.

According to an arrest report released on Tuesday, Garcia told a dispatcher the man he shot appeared to be reaching for something.  41-year-old Aleksandr Khutsishvili was killed in the shooting.

According to a Starbucks worker, Garcia ordered a bottle of water through the drive-through.  When he attempted to pay for the water, the employee says the microchip appeared to have been removed from the card and she wasn't able to process the transaction.  Garcia had already started drinking the water, and allowed him to leave the drive-through.  About 5 minutes later, Garcia walked inside the store and that's when he fired at least 3 shots before his gun jammed, killing Khutsishvili.

Pedro Garcia was arrested on the scene and charged with murder with a deadly weapon, robbery with a deadly weapon, burglary with a firearm, discharging a firearm into occupied structure, and owning or possessing a firearm by prohibited person.
