    Colorado Springs shooting suspect had middling criminal record, bragged of gang ties

    Manuel Zetina had a middling criminal record but big ambitions to climb the ranks of a local Mexican street gang.

    Zetina, 19, was killed in a gunbattle with Colorado Springs police and El Paso County sheriff's deputies Monday. The firefight also claimed the life of Deputy Micah Flick and wounded three other officers and a bystander.

    A Facebook page apparently belonging to Zetina shows a young man steeped in gang culture.

    "I bang dat Big Bad Soldados 13 Gang," Zetina bragged on Facebook, using slang for gang affiliation.

    While specifics on the gang Zetina referenced remain unclear, it appears to be a branch of the loosely-affiliated Sureños. That group pays homage to the Mexican Mafia and uses the number 13 as a reference to M, the 13th letter of the alphabet, to show its allegiance. Other Sureños groups in Colorado Springs commonly call members "soldados," the Spanish word for soldiers.
    Investigators haven't released details on the case and wouldn't discuss Zetina on Wednesday.

    Colorado Springs police Lt. Howard Black said details were still being gathered.

    "We're still doing interviews," he said.

    Zetina on Monday was targeted by a regional auto theft task force as part of a crackdown on prolific car thieves in Colorado Springs. While not revealing case details, Black did comment on the significance of the task force involvement.

    "They are not going after low-level car thieves," Black said. "They are going after people who have multiple, multiple thefts."

    Officers attempted to arrest him in the parking lot of an apartment complex at Galley Road and Murray Boulevard when police say he pulled a gun and began firing.

    Before Monday's gunbattle, however, Zetina didn't have an extensive criminal record. Court records show in 2016 he was cited for possessing drug paraphernalia and a small amount of marijuana - illegal for minors.

    Zetina was fined $238.

    In January, Colorado Springs police ticketed Zetina for driving without a license, having no insurance and using a phony license plate. Proceedings in that case were set for April.

    Born in Washington and raised in Peyton, the 19-year-old covered his social media page with pictures of himself flashing gang signs or wearing gang-oriented clothing.

    Nicknamed "Grumpy," Zetina was spotted by police in a stolen car near the Murray Hill Apartments, police said. Police had been keeping an eye on the area after five car thefts were reported in the past month.

    Colorado Springs police said the auto theft task force waited to arrest Zetina, planning to capture him in the parking lot.

    It remains unclear how the attempted arrest turned into one of the bloodiest incidents in local police history.

    12:08 PM - Feb 6, 2018

    KOAA reported:

    Flick was shot and killed Monday afternoon in Colorado Springs near the intersection of Galley and N. Murray around 4 p.m. Monday. He was rushed to Memorial Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

    Deputy Flick is survived by his wife and 7-year old twins, a boy and a girl.

    Sheriff Elder described Flick as a great deputy, father, husband, and a great friend to so many. Flick grew up in Colorado Springs, he was a graduate of the Colorado Springs Christian School, and spent 11 years with the sheriff’s office.

    “This is a family, we spend a lot of time together, we spend a lot of stressful, emotional time together; this is a shock to everyone.” Elder said Monday.
    Manuel Zetina, 19, was killed in the shooting.

    On Monday the media described Zetina as a “resident of Colorado Springs.”
    Now this…

    Manuel Zetina was a Mexican gang member.

    The Gazette reported:

    It is not clear yet if Zetina was an illegal alien.

    Undeterred by snow, residents line roads for El Paso County deputy's funeral procession

    By: Rachel Riley
    February 10, 2018 Updated: February 10, 2018 at 10:37 pm



    A crowd waves to the law enforcement vehicles as they drive by in a procession Saturday, Feb. 10, 2018, after the funeral for El Paso County Sheriff’s deputy Micah Flick at New Life Church in Colorado Springs, Colo. About a 1,000 people braved the cold and snow to line the southside of Woodmen Road between Powers and Tutt blvds in Colorado Springs, Colo., to pay their respects for the deputy who was killed Feb. 5, 2018. (The Gazette, Christian Murdock)

    Hours before Saturday's funeral for El Paso County sheriff's Deputy Micah Flick ended, vehicles began lining the roads where the procession of police and emergency vehicles would pass after the service.

    Cars and trucks with hazard lights flashing and exhausts fuming dotted the shoulder of Powers Boulevard. More cars clustered in parking lots near the route and at Woodmen Road and Tutt Boulevard or Research Parkway and Powers Boulevard.

    "It's amazing how the community has come together," said 47-year-old Dori Babcock, a former El Paso County sheriff's deputy, as she watched a live-stream of the funeral on her smartphone in a pickup parked near the overpass at Powers and Woodmen. "I'm going to cry my eyes out, but it's going to be an honor to have him pass by me."

    Most of the more than 1,000 who came to show their respect to Flick's family and support for local law enforcement agencies coping with the tragic death huddled in their vehicles, undeterred by the first major winter storm to hit the region.

    The procession passed and daylight began to fade, snow continued to swirl and temperatures hovered in the midteens. Hundreds of police and emergency vehicles escorted the hearse carrying Flick's body from New Life Church in northern Colorado Springs south on Powers Boulevard to East Woodmen Road to Falcon. From there, the family continued to Eastonville Cemetery in Black Forest for a private burial.

(The Gazette, Christian Murdock)

    "They put our lives on the line for us," said 61-year-old Tina Terry, who held a bouquet of blue carnations that she said were for the victim's family. "We're going to stand out here - rain, shine, no matter how cold it is."

    Law enforcement agencies from Colorado and beyond, including officers from New Mexico and Idaho, took part in the motorcade. There was even a crew from Canada, according to a tweet from the El Paso County Sheriff's Office.

    As the procession passed under the Powers Boulevard overpass on Woodmen Road, people waved American flags, saluted the passing cars and snapped pictures with their smartphones.

    One child held a sign that said "Heroes don't wear capes. They wear police uniforms."

    A man wearing Army fatigues, who had been waiting in traffic on the opposite side of the road, got out of his car and stood to salute.

    Some said they hoped the show of support would combat the negative image of law enforcement officers fostered by headlines about police brutality in recent years.
    "We've got their back. Not all of this community is out to get them," said 18-year-old Antonio Butierres while watching the procession just after it crossed under the overpass. He said he hopes to one day become a police officer.

Flick was killed Feb. 5, 2018. (The Gazette, Christian Murdock)

    Others there to pay respects said they had friends or family members who were law enforcement officers.

    Kara Tapia, 34, waited for the procession to begin in an SUV with her husband and children on Powers Boulevard across the street from Wolf Ranch subdivision. Her brother is a police officer, she said.

    "Every time something like this happens I call to check on my brother and tell him to be extra careful," she said of Flick's death. "It hurts my heart."

    The procession ended at Meridian Road. From there, Flick's body was taken to Eastonville Cemetery, where he was buried.

    Near Woodmen Road and Powers Boulevard, the crowds thinned as the last of the cars in the procession passed.

    "That's the tail end of it, folks," Colorado Springs Police Officer Richard Hunt told the few people still gathered when the final vehicles drove by.

    "Thank you, thank you, thank you," he said.

    Born in Washington - an anchor baby, a dreamer?

    Proves, it doesn't matter if born in USA, the criminality and damaged brains are with them as if they are in mexico. That is something we do not need/want and everyday the media should expose what is happening with these so called "immigrant families" and the harm that they do to our finest Americans of any age.

    There seems to be at least one illegal in group of gang members that murdered the two kids in the Springs. Same gang as the little vermin, IMO , that killed Micah Flick. It Was later reported that these two teens were shot execution style in the head.



    5 (including illegal alien) charged with murdering 2 Coronado students

    Five people have been charged with murder and five others with lesser felonies in connection with the deaths of two Coronado High School students.

    The bodies of Natalie Partida, 16 (a 10th-grader); and Derek Greer, 15 (a 9th-grader), were found March 12 beside Old Pueblo Road, about five miles south of Fountain.

    One of the murder suspects, Marco Antonio Garcia-Bravo, 20, is a “documented gang member” from Mexico who is in the United States illegally, according to Carl Rusnok, a spokesperson for the regional office of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

    The El Paso County Sheriff's Office, which made the arrests, has released no information about how the deaths occurred, or why.

    Asked about the students, Coronado Principal Darin Smith said of Greer, “I would describe him as a very personable young man who got caught up with the wrong person in the wrong place at the wrong time.”

    What Smith knows of Partida is that she “only came to Coronado one and a half days out of the entire school year.” He summarized that she “had a troubled past.”

    Separate burial services for Greer and Partida took place in late March.

    The other four individuals charged in their deaths are Gustavo Marquez, 19; Diego Chacon, 19 (as of April 24); Joseph Arthur Rodriguez, 18; and Alexandria Marie Romero, 20.

    The accused are being held in the El Paso County Criminal Justice Center and are scheduled for hearings in District Court June 30 before Judge Larry Schwartz,.

    Regarding Garcia-Bravo, ICE has placed an immigration detainer on him with the Sheriff's Office. That type of detainer requests “that ICE be notified before local authorities release an alien who has been arrested on criminal charges,” Rusnok explained. “ICE places detainers only on individuals it has probable cause to believe are removable from the United States under federal immigration law.”

    ICE is under the United States Department of Homeland Security.

    The five being held on charges other than murder are scheduled for separate hearings.

    Below is a full listing of the charges against all 10 who were arrested, followed by their next court appearance dates. (Information was provided by the Sheriff's Office and Fourth Judicial Court docket data, except for Romero's murder charge, which the prosecution revealed at the District Court hearing April 11, according to a Gazette courtroom report). Note: “x2” means two counts.

    - Marquez: first degree murder (x2), kidnapping (x2), aggravated robbery (x2) and child abuse resulting in death. Next court date - June 30.
    - Chacon: first degree murder (x2), second degree kidnapping (x2), aggravated robbery and child abuse. Next court date - June 30.
    - Rodriguez: first degree murder (x2), second degree kidnapping (x2), aggravated robbery, child abuse and accessory. Next court date - June 30.
    - Garcia-Bravo: first degree murder (x2), second degree kidnapping (x2), aggravated robbery and child abuse. Next court date - June 30.
    - Romero: first-degree murder, second degree kidnapping and accessory. Next court date - June 30.
    - Alander Jordon Wilson, 43: attempt to influence a public official. Next court date - June 30.
    - Angelita Prado, 22: kidnapping. Next court date - May 11.
    - Breeana Eloise Dahlberg, 20: second degree kidnapping. Next court date - May 11.
    - Carlos Meza (age not provided): possession of a weapon by a previous offender. Next court date - May 11.
    - Endo Velarde, 18: attempt to influence a public official. Next court date - June 30.
