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.

I think of you now and cant help but think about how different our lives would all be if only you could still be here with us. We miss you so much. The years keep slipping away so fast . It feels like we are so much older without your humor. We miss your funny stories and the funny face you used to make right before you would say the funniest part of your story. The things you used to do and say to make us laugh. I still repeat some of them from time to time to him to make him laugh and think of you and the goods times we used to all spend together. I know you can see our little family from where you are but I wish they could have met you. I know you never thought we would ever get around to starting a family but we finally did it and your right our lives are so much more happier with our kids in it . I think about your beautiful kids and know they love and miss you so very much . I pray for them . Thanks for helping to keep watch over him while he is on duty.we think of you often and know you are in a beautiful place. We will always love you and keep you in our heart's.
