According to a Texas prison official, the 30-year-old man charged with capital murder in the shooting deaths of two Dallas hospital personnel was on parole and had been allowed permission to be at the hospital for the birth of a child.
FOX 4 News Dallas-Fort Worth investigated into Nestor Oswaldo Hernandez’s extensive criminal background. When the shooting took place, he was wearing an ankle monitor.
According to Amanda Hernandez, a spokeswoman for the Texas Department of Criminal Justice, Hernandez was given permission to take Saturday’s delivery at Methodist Dallas Medical Center with his “significant other” while he was on leave. She could not disclose any other information regarding the circumstances surrounding the shooting, only that he had been sentenced to prison for aggravated robbery and had been released on parole in October of last year.
According to a 2015 indictment FOX 4 was able to receive, Hernandez and a female suspect attacked a woman coming home from work. Hernandez grabbed the victim’s phone, car, and $3,000 in cash from a school fundraiser while holding her hands together with tape and covering her eyes with tape. The sufferer suffered a cracked eye as well as a damaged nose.
