Matt Garcia, 22, Fairfield CA This kid is my dear friend's son...PLEASE HELP!! September 2, 2008 Fairfield Councilman Matt Garcia Dies From Gunshot Wound? 22-year-old Matt Garcia, one of the youngest elected officials in the state, succumbed to injuries after taking a "single bullet to the back of the head" on Monday night in front of a pal's house. He was allowed to die "naturally" at John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek this afternoon, being taken off of life support at his family's request. Garcia, who was born and raised in Farfield, wanted to be mayor the his hometown ever since he was in the sixth grade. Thoughts and prayers go out to his family. The reason for his murder (i.e., whether or not Garcia was the intended target) is still under investigation. No arrests have been made.
