Citizen Staff Writer



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.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
