A 34-year-old man has been sentenced to 15 years in prison after pleading guilty to a murder charge in a shooting in December 2011.

Derrick Wayne Camp of Fort Worth pleaded guilty on July 2 to the slaying of Alfonso Garcia, 41.

Investigators determined that Camp and Garcia argued on Dec. 1, 2011, while standing in a driveway in the 5300 block of Flamingo Road. Camp shot Garcia once in the chest, according to a police report.

A man who called 911 from a pay phone in the 4100 block of Mansfield Highway said that he and a friend had been shot at by two men on Flamingo Road and now “he could not find his friend,” police reported.

Officers found Garcia, who was pronounced dead at the scene.
