Genaro Mercado (5374)



5/7/2010: Officers reported that when they chased Mercado in his car, and when he stopped, he left the car and came toward officers, shooting at them with a handgun. Four officers fired back and killed Mercado. He was suspected of killing his sister's boyfriend -- and an order of protection is shedding some light on what led to that domestic fight. http://intimateviolencedeathnews.blogspot.com/2010/05/phoenix-az-police-shootout-suspect.html
