When deputies approached the home they heard gunshots coming from the home. While continuing to approach the home, that they believed had a domestic violence active shooter, they located Marco Chavez. When making contact with Chavez, he was not armed and was taken into custody.
Deputies entered his home and found a mini-14 rifle with a high capacity magazine and numerous fired cartridge casings. Bullet holes were located throughout the home, and authorities had reason to believe that he was firing at the first responding deputies. Through investigation, it was learned that Chavez’ wife and children were in the home when he began loading the firearm, but they had left the home before the shots were fired.
No injuries were reported as a result of the incident and Chavez was arrested for attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon, child endangerment, and felon in possession of a firearm.
