KATY — Precinct 5 Constable Ted Heap’s Strategic Response Unit, working with the Gulf Coast Violent Offenders Task Force, arrested Juan Jesus Guerrero today (Oct. 4, 2018).
Guerrero, 21, is facing felony charges of assaulting a public servant after he opened fire on a Precinct 5 deputy during a pursuit on Saturday, September 15.
Guerrero led the deputy on a pursuit reaching speeds up to 90 mph before losing control of his vehicle, crashing into another car, and ending up in a parking lot in the 5300 block of N. Highway 6. Guerrero then climbed out of his car and fled on foot, firing three shots in the deputy’s direction he ran away. The deputy was not hurt but his patrol vehicle was struck by one of the rounds.
Precinct 5 investigators identified Guerrero last week, and recently identified where he was hiding out. In executing a search warrant in the 16300 block of Pebbleglen Drive today, they found Guerrero and took him into custody without incident.
Another man, Christopher Erik Arana, 20, who was living at the same location was arrested for possession of a stolen handgun and a variety of illegal drugs, including THC, Xanax and marijuana.
