Marco Oslando Guerra Obituary – The Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office has released the identity of a man killed while exchanging gunfire with law enforcement last week. The cause of death of Marco Orlando Guerra, 37, was listed as a homicide due to multiple gunshot wounds, according to the medical examiner.
Parker County sheriff’s deputies, along with a Weatherford police canine, were reportedly conducting a warrant service around 7:30 p.m. on Nov. 16 for Guerra at a residence off Hancock Drive, according to a press release from the sheriff’s office. Guerra had been wanted in connection with seven outstanding felony warrants, including aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon, and evading arrest.
As law enforcement approached the home, the sheriff’s office said Guerra fled on foot, fired upon officers and was killed when officers returned fire. The police canine, Jack, was wounded by gunfire and taken to a local veterinary hospital, where he was treated and later released, expected to make a full recovery.
No other officers sustained gunshot wounds during the incident, the sheriff’s office said.
The incident remains under investigation by the Texas Rangers.
