Dallas County records show that the hospital shooter has had repeated arrests since 2011. And has had charges of aggravated robbery, burglary, and the unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon. 

Garcia said Hernandez’s most recent conviction was an eight-year sentence for aggravated robbery.  “Aggravated” robbery means that the victim was violently attacked.

He was paroled in October 2021 after serving 6-years of an 8-year sentence. In March 2022, he was re-arrested for a parole violation. And released to his parole officer.
