Tucson, AZ a home invasion caught on security cameras 4 armed men attack, home owner defends himself, shootout broke out

Lou Dobbs Tonight
February 12, 2009


Spillover from what's going on south of the border.

A home invasion caught on security cameras in Tucson, Arizona by four men armed with automatic weapons surrounding a suburban home. But the homeowner defended himself and his home and a shootout broke out in broad daylight. The victim was able to get back inside his house, close his door, semi barricade it, reach for a weapon that was easily accessible. The four men retreat, get into their car, but not before the homeowner's bullets hit the windshield. The sheriff officials say the homeowner has surveillance cameras installed all around his house. Some stray bullets even hit a home across the street. Arizona Sheriff's Department who says he's seen more and more of these kinds of incidents. we arrested one of the suspects. we were serving a total of six search warrants today. Yes. His name is David Gutierrez. He lives in Tucson. And we know he's an associate, a friend of the other individual that we believe was involved and actually behind the wheel and actually shot in this incident. And that individual is Jesus Mendovel. We have an active arrest warrant for him currently.

For whatever reason, people will attack someone's home, either for -- thinking there's drugs there, because they've got a history, or perhaps they have not paid a debt that's owed to them and it's going to be a kidnapping. We learned this week that Phoenix is now the kidnapping capital of the United States. we see the drastic increase in the number of home invasions. Last year we would have, four years, maybe two dozen a year. Now we're having almost a dozen or so a month. It's really gotten crazy. And it's spillover from what's going on south of the border. Dobbs: The homeowner defending himself, his property. He's, in your judgment, totally within his rights in the way he conducted himself? O'CONNOR: Oh, absolutely. There's no question. You look at that video and the way these guys storm into his home with masks on. Their faces covered. With obviously a long rifle appears to be an ak-47, or an al-15. The other guys are carrying semiautomatic handguns. They were ready to assault this house. I guess we can say once again, thank you for the second amendment.

Once again, Hispanic name does not automatically mean illegal immigrant.
