Borger shooting leaves 1 person dead, 3 others injured

On Saturday at around 9:30 pm, the Borger Regional Communications Center received a call reporting an ongoing incident in the 700 block of N. Main St. This incident initially started as a disturbance inside a local business and quickly escalated into a physical altercation in the parking lot. 

During this altercation, parties from both sides retrieved firearms from their vehicles, resulting in an exchange of gunfire. One individual lost their life, and three others were injured. Fortunately, no innocent bystanders were harmed during this incident.
Upon the arrival of law enforcement officers at the scene, four individuals were discovered with varying degrees of injuries. One party was pronounced dead on scene by the Justice of the Peace. The other injured parties were transported to nearby hospitals, where they remain. 

Additionally, one uninjured party has been taken into custody and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, a felony of the second degree. Police are also looking into an earlier disturbance at separate location down the street. 

As a result of the incident at Los Agaves Jalisco’s Grill & Cantina, the injured parties include Jose DeLeon, 31, of Houston, Troy Preas, 49, of Borger, and Troy Geraldizo, 31, of Borger. 

Jose Alvarez, 25, of Houston, was pronounced deceased on scene by Justice of the Peace Leslie Ford, and an autopsy has been ordered. 

Seth Preas, 25, of Borger, was arrested and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

As these investigations progress, additional charges are anticipated that should lead to more arrests.
The Borger Police Department is diligently processing physical evidence and conducting interviews with those involved and witnesses. Their aim is to achieve a comprehensive and thorough investigation. Upon the completion of the investigation, the case will be forwarded to the district attorney's office for prosecution.
If you have information to provide about incidents that reportedly occurred at Main Street Bar OR Los Agaves Jalisco’s Grill & Cantina, please do not hesitate to contact the police department and ask to speak with an officer.
In response to the concerns of our community, the Borger Chief of Police wishes to reassure residents that the department remains steadfast in its commitment to ensuring the safety and well-being of the city.
