Third man arrested in home invasion attempt

A man wanted for an alleged role in a February home invasion attempt and shootout has turned himself in.

Jose Manuel Chavez, 21, is the third person arrested in the Feb. 5 incident.

A fourth man is at large and presumed to be in Mexico.

Authorities said the four men were armed with pistols and assault rifles when they tried to break into a home in the 300 block of West Vande Loo Street.

The homeowner opened fire with a pistol that he kept near the front door, injuring at least one man as they fled the neighborhood, near South Mission and West Valencia roads.

Chavez is charged with armed robbery and burglary, according to a Pima County Sheriff’s Department news release.

The two others arrested in the case are Alejandro Durazo and David Gutierrez, both 22, authorities said.

The fourth man, 23-year-old Jesus Mendivil, is believed to have been wounded and may have gone to Mexico, authorities said.

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
