SANTA ANA, Calif. – A man was convicted today of the shooting-murder of a woman in Garden Grove. Nathaniel Joseph Liscano, 23, Garden Grove, was convicted of one felony count of first degree murder with a sentencing enhancement for personal discharge of a firearm causing great bodily injury or death. Liscano faces a maximum sentence of 50 years to life in state prison. The defendant is scheduled to be sentenced on March 8, 2019, at 9:00 a.m. in Department C-36, Central Justice Center, Santa Ana.

On Aug. 24, 2016, Liscano went to a residence in Garden Grove. After a verbal and physical altercation between the victim and the defendant's mother in front of the residence, the defendant pulled out a gun and shot the victim in the face and chest. Nichol attempted to run away after the initial shots, but Liscano chased her and shot her three times in the back. After he shot the victim, the defendant fled the scene.

Police were called by a witness shortly after the shooting. The victim died at the scene as a result of multiple bullet wounds. 

The crime was captured by a home surveillance system, which clearly showed Liscano's face during the incident. The defendant fled to Corpus Christi, Texas, where he was arrested by the United States Marshals Service on Sept. 13, 2016. Garden Grove Police Department investigated this case.
