TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - We are learning more about a deadly SWAT shooting that killed a father and ex-Marine.
Thursday, the Pima County Sheriff's Department released a stack of transcripts- and video taken during the raid.
Since then- KGUN9 News has been scrutinizing the transcripts and analyzing the video.
After weeks of near silence, the Sheriff's Department has shared more than five hundred pages of investigation outlining what SWAT did the day team members shot and killed Jose Guerena.
The Sheriff's Department released video of the first roughly 45 seconds of the incident at Jose Guerena's house.
To SWAT a few seconds of sound from a siren back up a key claim: that they made it clear they were genuine law enforcement, not home invaders posing as police.
Guerena's wife Vanessa told KGUN 9 she did not hear any sirens that day.
But that conflicts with what she said to a detective.
Translated from Spanish she says. "You could just hear."
The detective asks, "Vanessa"?
She goes on to say, "Ooo, ooo, ooo. And then a siren. I didn't hear voices. I just heard that they screamed."
You do not see Jose Guerena but you see SWAT's reaction to what the team says was the sight of Guerena pointing an assault rifle at them.
They open up with one assault rifle and four handguns.
Investigators say SWAT fired 71 times. The family says they hit Guerena about 60 times. But the medical examiner confirmed to 9 On Your Side when the final autopsy report is available it will show he was shot about 22 times.
While no one is saying it was illegal to have the three assault rifles and five sets of body armor SWAT says it found, investigators suggest they are consistent with their investigation into home invasion gangs who might pose as police.
Guerena's wife told detectives she had no idea he had those weapons, including a rifle found under their mattress.
She says the first she knew Guerena had any sort of rifle was when he grabbed an AR15 and headed for the door.
Vanessa Guerena told detective, "I saw the gun, I was like, what the **** did you get that?"
KGUN 9 and Guerena's family raised questions about why more than an hour went by before SWAT sent an ambulance crew away without treating him.
SWAT says they could not be sure he was no longer a threat and that there was no one else in the house to worry about.
Reports indicate they could see Guerena lying in a pool of blood but could not see him well enough to conclude he was dead until they sent robots in. Video from the robots, and the fact he did not respond convinced them he was dead.
