Officer Involved Shooting – Jose Guerena – Tucson, AZ
Jose Guerena was a U.S. Marine veteran who served in the Iraq War and was killed in his Tucson, Arizona home on May 5th, 2011 by the Pima County Sherriff’s Department SWAT team. Deputies were executing a search warrant of Jose’s home at the time. The shooting garnered national attention and generated significant debate on the subject of the militarization of police.
After the shooting, no evidence of illegal activity or any illegal items were recovered. Guerena’s home weapon was found with its safety still engaged.
In September of 2013, the four police agencies involved agreed to pay Guerena’s wife and children $3.4 million dollars as a settlement, without admitting any wrongdoing in their killing of Jose.
