Death Investigation: 19-389
On Friday 01/11/19, the Ogle County Sheriff’s 911 center took a call in reference to a subject with a self-inflicted gunshot wound in Rochelle at 300 South Main St. #4. Rochelle fire and police personnel were dispatched to the scene.

Upon arrival, a deceased male subject was located in the living room, with an apparent gunshot wound to the head. Rochelle Police detectives, the Illinois State Police Crime Scene Unit and the Ogle County Coroner were called to the scene. The deceased is John M. Garza, 28, of Rochelle.

Witnesses on scene advised officers that the deceased subject had been playing with a handgun just prior to hearing a gunshot and finding the victim in the living room.
During the course of the investigation, it was learned that several subjects had fled the scene. The firearm used in the shooting could not be located and it was believed that one of the subjects who fled the scene had taken the gun.
Ogle County Sheriff’s detectives were called to assist in locating the missing witnesses. The Ogle County Sheriff’s drone was used to check the surrounding rooftops for the missing weapon, with negative results.

Detectives were able to locate the individuals that had been in the apartment at the time of the shooting and take statements from them. Detectives spoke to one of the witnesses who took them to the weapon that was allegedly used in the shooting. The weapon was recovered and will be sent to the Illinois State Police Crime Lab for processing.

The Ogle County Coroner’s Office will conduct an autopsy on Monday 01/14//19
