According to the Aurora Sentinel, Deputy Jose Marquez was off duty and not in uniform when the incident occurred. He walked out of his girlfriend’s apartment “to grab something from his car.” On his way back inside, he was confronted by two men, one of whom, Jhalil Meshesha, pulled a gun and told Marquez to “give it up.”
