ANSWER: According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation website, Santino Mario Garcia is a fugitive.

He is wanted in Sacramento County for alleged involvement in the shooting death of a man during a game of dominoes on Aug. 26, 2007.

The Sacramento Superior Court issued an arrest warrant for Garcia on Aug. 27, 2007 after he was charged with homicide. A federal arrest warrant was issued Nov. 27, 2007, after Garcia was charged with unlawful flight to avoid prosecution.

According to the FBI, Garcia is a validated Del Paso Heights Norteno gang member. He reportedly has ties to Mexico and may be living there.

The FBI has offered a reward of up to $20,000 for infomration leading directly to Garcia's arrest.
