Guerrero, a recent college graduate, says he was enjoying a nice Wednesday evening at home when he heard someone outside.
“Just trying to enjoy my evening. All the sudden, I see a flashlight shining through my doors…,” Guerrero said. “I’m thinking this could be a dangerous situation for me.”
Assuming he was the target of a robbery, Guerrero went to his door to ward off the potential thieves. That’s when things got out of control.
“I come over to my door and I slap it to say hey someone is in this house and they’re not going to let you come in here… Right as soon as I opened this door, and it’s dark outside – it’s very dark and all I can see is a pistol,” Guerrero recalled.
Guerrero heard a man yell, “Sheriff’s Office” and complied with an order to step outside of his home.
Police held him at gunpoint, handcuffed him and accused him of breaking into his house.
“They directed me to take a knee, well both knees,” he said. “The gun [was] still drawn.”
