CRIME SCENE PHOTOS: Fast and Furious Gun Used In Apartment Shooting
Shocking new crime scene photos show the serial number of the Department of Justice Fast and Furious rifle used in a bloody apartment shooting in Phoenix, Arizona.
The photos, obtained by the nonprofit group Judicial Watch in a lawsuit against the city of Phoenix and provided to The Daily Caller, depict the grisly aftermath of a July 29, 2013 shooting in a Phoenix apartment that wounded two people. Four arrests were made in the case. Suspects Bruno Brizuela, Jonathan Mejinez-Sanchez, Jovanny Andrade, and Kayonte Scott were believed to have been using an acquaintance’s car, which was abandoned near the crime scene after hitting a fence.
Joaquin Bojorquez-Romero was shot in the leg and Jobani Flores was shot in the head. Victim Cleiver Nava-Diaz was not injured.
A rifle found in the abandoned car came from Attorney General Eric Holder’s Fast and Furious program, which put firearms into the black market on the Southern border in a failed attempt to track firearm circulation among Mexican drug cartels. The AK-47 style rifle was purchased in 2009 by Sean Christopher Seward, who pled guilty to trafficking firearms that he bought while the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms was monitoring his activities as part of Fast and Furious.
