shot in back by police officer

Cop Breaks Down Door, Shoots Man in the the Back, Kills Him

The Rocky Ford police officer involved in the shooting, James Ashby, is on administrative leave pending the investigation.

Sara Lindenmuth is the victim’s sister-in-law. She said Jack Jacquez came home just before 2 a.m.  Then, she said a police officer forced down the front door and the two men started shouting.

“He was standing next to his mom, his back turned toward the officer and then he shot him twice in the back and then pepper sprayed him. Then they handcuffed his fiancé, for reasons I don’t know why. And the mom went to call the cops and the cop took her phone and threw it against the wall,” said Lindenmuth.

Mariah Jacquez said one of the shots fired almost hit her. She said she and her soon-to-be mother-in-law were handcuffed but didn’t know why.
