A Starbucks customer's card was declined... and then he shot another customer


Ex-convict Pedro J. Garcia's card was declined at the drive-thru window at a Las Vegas Starbucks, so he headed inside.

The exact events are unclear, but it is known that Garcia entered the store, began an argument with another customer and allegedly fired two bullets at the victim, killing him, according to CBS.

Police allege that the suspect then phoned in a phony tip to 911, giving the operators a fake description of the shooter. 

Police arrived at the scene, questioned witnesses and figured out someone had phoned in the fake tip. They took Garcia into custody who then told police there was a bomb in a bag. After getting a bomb robot and searching his bad, that was determined to be a lie. 

Starbucks was quick to respond to the tragedy.

Here is the mugshot of Pedro J. Garcia.
