In an amazing twist of fate, investigators discovered one of Marquez’s bullets inside the barrel of Meshesha’s pistol.
BA: On Wednesday, Arapahoe County prosecutors announced their determination that Deputy Jose Marquez acted appropriately when he exchanged gunfire with two attempted robbery suspects in Aurora, Colorado back in January.
On January 26, Marquez was visiting his girlfriend and had gone to the parking lot to get something out of his car. Two men with masks on their face approached him in the parking lot, one pulled a weapon and said “Give it up.”
Deputy Marquez, who was off duty and not in uniform, was shot in the shoulder and abdomen but managed to draw his own weapon and return fire at the suspects, ending the attack. more
