Constable Tino Juarez dies from gunshot wound
Constable Tino Juarez has died in a Laredo hospital after being shot inside his northside home.
The shooting happened around 7:30 Wednesday night in the 8800 block Liberty Loop.
Laredo police scrambled to the scene after a 911 call to dispatch.
Investigators say it was his wife on the other end of the line.
She told dispatchers her husband constable Juarez had been shot once in the upper body.
Neighbors gathered outside their homes to figure out what had just happened in their quiet neighborhood as police combed the scene behind yellow crime scene tape.
Again investigators are still looking into how Constable Juarez was shot only telling us at this point that the wound was to his chest area of the body.
Everyone seems to be saying the same thing: "Please pray for his family" in this tough time.
Tino Juarez had more than 40 years of experience in law enforcement.
He was previously a US Marine, and after his service he joined the Laredo Police Department.
He also worked for the Webb County Sheriff's Department as a chief deputy, before running for office and taking over as Constable of Precinct 4 in 1997.
