It has been a devasting time for a Texas father after losing two loved ones after asking his neighbor not to shoot a gun because it disturbed his one-month-old baby.

Wilson Garcia, who asked neighbor, Francisco Oropesa, not to shoot his gun, allegedly killed five people at Garcia's home in Cleveland Texas Friday night.

Garcia spoke out on what led to the devastating massacre.

According to Garcia, he and his wife were hosting guests on Friday night and had just put their newborn to bed when Oropesa began shooting a gun off of his porch next door.

Garcia then asked Oropesa to "be quiet" and threatened to call the police if he did not put his gun away due to how the loud bang can wake up his newborn.

The 38-year-old suspected shooter reportedly stormed into Garcia's home and opened fire.

"We asked him to be quiet because my baby was scared," Garcia told ABC 13 on Sunday. "I never thought that he would shoot."

"He went room to room, looking for people," Garcia added.

Five people were reported killed on Friday night after Oropesa allegedly opened fire.

The people who were killed included Garcias 25-year-old wife, Sonia Argentina Guzman, Garcia's 8-year-old son, Daniel Enrique Laso, and guests 21-year-old Diana Velazquez Alvarado, 31-year-old Julisa Molina Rivera, and 18-year-old Jose Jonathan Casarez.

Investigation revealed that each victim was shot from the neck up and it was reported that two of the victims died while shielding children.

"I never had a problem with him," Garcia told ABC. "I can't believe what he did."

The alleged shooter is still on the run and law enforcement officials reported that he could be anywhere by now and is considered armed and dangerous.

An $80,000 reward has also recently been announced for any information that could lead to Oropesa's whereabouts.
