ARIZONA-Jose Guerena, a decorated Marine was shot and killed by a SWAT team in a raid gone wrong. The team was looking for a marijuana ring and gave no warning before entering Gerena’s house. The Huffington Post reports:
As the SWAT team forced its way into his home, Guerena, a former Marine who served two tours of duty in Iraq, armed himself with his AR-15 rifle and told his wife and son to hide in a closet. As the officers entered, Guerena confronted them from the far end of a long, dark hallway. The police opened fire, releasing more than 70 rounds in about 7 seconds, at least 60 of which struck Guerena. He was pronounced dead a little over an hour later.
