November 27, 2018

A second suspect who said she was going to “disappear” after a fatal shooting on the Northeast Side last month was arrested Monday.

Rachael Stanford, 30, is charged with murder and two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, according to court records.

Gregory Dylan Garrett, 23, was arrested last week on the same charges in connection with the Oct. 25 shooting.

Stanford and Garrett are accused in the death of 22-year-old James Perez Jr., according to San Antonio police.

Garrett and Stanford knocked on the door of a home in the 4000 block of Mystic Sunrise at about 6 p.m., an affidavit said.

When a man answered the door, Garrett and Stanford entered the home and began shooting at him and two others who were inside, police said.

The duo then ran outside to a gray pickup that they had backed into the driveway of the home and drove away from the scene, investigators said.

Perez was pronounced dead at the home, police said.

First responders found the other two men critically injured and took them to San Antonio Military Medical Center.

A man told police earlier this month that Stanford messaged him that she screwed up and was going to disappear, according to an arrest warrant affidavit.

Stanford said that a “homeboy” she was with dropped his phone and gun during a shooting, the affidavit states.

A phone containing all of Garrett’s identifying information, including his Social Security card, Texas ID and Texas Department of Criminal Justice card, was recovered by investigators from the scene.

Details about Stanford’s arrest were not immediately available Monday evening.
