Kenosha police responded and surrounded the house. After hours of verbal commands to exit the house, SWAT conducted a search of the residence – but Garcia was not found. It was believed Garcia exited the home before it was completely contained, officials said at the time.

On June 10, police said Garcia "struck again" in Cudahy where he had "family connections." Officials did not provide details of that incident.
