TUCSON (CN) – A widow says a regional SWAT team killed her husband, a Marine veteran, in a botched raid not even aimed at him, riddling their house with 72 bullets while she and their 4-year-old son were in it.

Vanessa Guerena says police refused to allow paramedics to help her husband, 26-year-old Jose Guerena, after the SWAT team shot him repeatedly while serving a search warrant on May 5.

“No shots were ever fired at members of the Pima Regional SWAT Team from inside the Guerena home,” the widow says in her Pima County Court complaint. She says her husband was “peacefully sleeping in his bed” after returning home from the night shift at a mine when the police killed him.

“After the shooting, the Pima Regional SWAT Team denied entry to anyone, including paramedics, into the Guerena home for over an hour.”

The raid apparently was aimed at her husband’s brother, who did not live with them.

Guerena says that the affidavit in support of the search warrant “misrepresented and failed to include complete and material information about Joseph Guerena.”
