TUCSON, AZ (KOLD) - Tucson Police confirm that a weapon they found in Jose Guerena's home had been stolen in 2008.

SWAT officers killed Guerena in his southwest side home last month when they went to serve a search warrant.

Investigators say Guerena pointed an assault rifle at officers when they went in the house.

They shot him dead.

Tucson Police say a gun found in Guerena's house had been stolen in a burglary at a home in the 4300 Block of East Holmes three years ago.
