A Dallas man accused of kidnapping two children and beating a third to death was arrested after an Amber Alert. Christopher Anthony Garcia was being held in the Dallas County Jail Thursday on $1 million bail, following his Wednesday night arrest.
The 24-year-old was charged with injury to a child in the fatal beating of his girlfriend's 3-year-old son earlier in the week.
Authorities say he does not yet have an attorney. Police say Garcia abducted his 8-month-old daughter and a 4-year-old boy Wednesday, triggering the Amber Alert. The children were later found unharmed.
Police say Garcia jumped from an apartment window to escape. The Dallas Morning News reports that when Garcia turned toward pursuing officers, police thought he was armed and shot him. No one was injured.
