Officer Sergio Carrera was shot while serving a warrant at an
apartment building during a narcotics raid.

The officer was part of a six man swat team serving a
narcotics search warrant on a duplex on Cascade Street just
off of Riverside Avenue at 7 am. He was shot in the upper
body during a struggle between a man and fellow officer
inside an apartment. He was rushed to a hospital, but died
from his wounds during surgery.

The suspect, wanted in Mississippi for selling cocaine, was
charged with first degree murder. On January 26, 2011, he
was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter. From the
evidence presented the jury could not determine how the
officer's rifle discharged as he struggled with the suspect. The
suspect is to be sentenced on February 28, 2011.

Officer Carrera had served with the Rialto Police Department
for 4 years. He is survived by his wife and two children.
