Suspect in overnight home invasion taken into custody
Several Corpus Christi Police units were called to the intersection of Carroll Lane and Holly Road after a person was reported to be barricaded inside an apartment complex building.
Police said they were on a limited SWAT call at the Carroll Lane Apartments. Lt. Chris Hooper said officers were searching for a suspect in connection with a home invasion on Longview Tuesday night. Two residents were shot during that home invasion, and one of three suspects, a 27-year-old male, was killed.
During Wednesday afternoon's SWAT operation, police believed one of the robbery suspects was locked in a room at the Carroll Lane Apartments. However, they were later informed that the suspect, identified as 26-year-old Jesus Guerra, was at a location on Leopard Street. When officers arrived, he turned himself in.
Guerra was booked on an aggravated robbery warrant with a $500,000 bond.
