Residents in this La Joya neighborhood, near Leo Avenue and 9th street lived what they call “hours of terror” after dozens of law enforcement officers surrounded a housing unit and were ready to fire their weapons as 29 year old Joaquin Cibrian, a fugitive wanted on capital murder charges, barricaded himself inside an apartment and wouldn’t surrender. The suspect fired multiple times with no regard for human life injuring two police officers. “They are lucky to be alive the officers excited the vehicle the exact moment that the shooter opened fire I’m my 12 years in the police force I have never seen anything like this,” explains Geovani Hernandez, La Joya police chief.
