Report #: 15-080362
Date: Friday, 8/7/2015
Time: 10:02 PM
Location: 150 Sherwood Dr.
NMC contacted the police department for a gunshot victim who had arrived in the emergency room. The victim, Eliot Cerna Guererro (22) was driven to the emergency room by family members. Guererro died shortly after his arrival. It is believed at this point in the investigation, the shooting occurred at 150 Sherwood Drive. The victims were confronted by several gang members who challenged the victims about their gang affiliation. The surviving victim attempted to drive away to avoid a confrontation when the suspect(s) blindly fired upon the vehicle shooting and killing Guererro and narrowly missing a juvenile who was seated behind the victim. This is being investigated as a gang related homicide although the victim had no apparent gang ties. If anyone may have witnessed the homicide or can provide information, they are encouraged to contact Detective Derek Gibson at 758-7442.
