AZ - Jose Guerena Shot 60 Times By SWAT TeamThe wife of a Tucson man killed in a Pima County SWAT raid May 5 pleaded for five minutes with 911 dispatchers to send an ambulance for her mortally wounded husband, audio records show.
Often through tears and sometimes in broken English, Vanessa Guerena, tells 911 operators that her husband had been shot by a "bunch of people" who opened the door of their southwest-side home and "just shoot him." Meanwhile, dispatchers worked to determine if she was calling from a house where the SWAT team was serving a search warrant, audio released Friday by Drexel Heights Fire Department reveals. It takes about an hour for waiting medics to know what happened, and the man is dead before fire crews are allowed into the home.
Jose Guerena, 26, a former Marine, was sleeping after the graveyard shift at Asarco Mission mine about 9:30 a.m. when his wife woke him saying she heard noises outside and a man was at their window. Guerena told his wife to hide in a closet with their 4-year-old son, his wife has said. He grabbed an AR-15 rifle.....
The Pima County Sheriff’s Department will release no more information about the circumstances surrounding the killing of Jose Guerena during the serving of a search warrant by the department’s SWAT officers May 5 at his home.
Two weeks after the shooting the department has yet to disclose exactly what they were searching for in the Guerena home as well as three other residences in the area that were subjects of a drug investigation. Court documents that show what officers were searching for in the case have been sealed and what was seized as evidence has also been sealed.
Sheriff Clarence Dupnik, through a department spokesman Tuesday morning, declined an interview request.
No one from the department will comment about the case until the investigation is complete, Deputy Jason Ogan said Tuesday. There is no timeframe for when the investigation will be over, he said.....
The Pima County Sheriff's Department must explain the circumstances that led to SWAT officers firing 71 bullets at a former Marine inside his house while serving a search warrant.
The man, Jose Guerena, was hit 60 times and died while medics were kept outside and his wife pleaded with 911 dispatchers for help.
The wall of silence put up by the Sheriff's Department is alarming. Sheriff Clarence Dupnik has refused to answer questions about the May 5 shooting.
What's more, the court documents that explain what officers were looking for at Guerena's home, or in three nearby homes that were also part of a drug investigation, have been sealed. Documents detailing what was seized as evidence have also been made secret.
Echavarri's reporting has unearthed details from the 911 call Guerena's wife, Vanessa, made while she and their young son were hiding in the closet.....
New details are emerging in the case of an Iraq war vet shot and killed by
SWAT team members serving a warrant.
Monday the Pima County sheriff's department admitted the man did not fire at them first.
Tuesday, his wife gave her side of the story.....
She claims her husband was wrongly killed in a SWAT raid and in 911 tapes just released by the Drexel Heights Fire Department, you can hear the desperation in Vanessa Gurena's voice as she pleads for them to help her husband Jose after he was shot.
Vanessa Guerena called 911 after her husband Jose was shot.
Where's, where is your husband at right now?
He's on the floor.
He's inside the house?
Yes, he's on the floor, can you please hurry up.
According to reports, the SWAT members fired at the former Marine who was holding a rifle with the safety on.
His wife explains to the operator what she'd seen.....
