Late last month, the home of Lilian Alonzo, in Manchester, New Hampshire, was ransacked by DEA agents in a raid that turned up empty handed. Alonzo, a 49-year-old grandmother, was shot in the attack as she reached for her infant grandchild in the midst of the chaos.
Her son, Daniel Nunez, told the New Hampshire Union Leader that the raid began with his 10-year-old sister getting rushed by a large group of DEA agents as she opened the door. Then he says, as the agents spread out across the house, his mother instinctively reached for the infant child to keep the baby safe from the intruders.
“She (Alonzo) went to pick up the baby. They thought she was reaching for something, and they shot her,” Nunez told the Union Leader newspaper.
The bullet went through her arm, entered her torso and still remains inside of her. Nunez said that she needed 30 stitches but is recovering well considering what she has been through.
There was nothing illegal found in the home and no one inside was arrested. Neighbors reported seeing nearly two dozen police vehicles outside of the house during the raid.
“They didn’t find anything at all or else my mom would have been arrested. Mom had nothing to do with this,” Nunez said.
The home had allegedly become the target of a police investigation because Alonzo’s Daughters, who live on their own, were implicated in a black market drug operation.
According to the warrant, a confidential source told police that they saw $50,000 sitting on a table at Alonzo’s apartment, which was likely the testimony that earned the warrant. However, the police did not find large sums of money in the house when they searched it.
On the night of the raid, Nunez said that there were three children in the apartment, ages ten, four and one. Luckily it wasn’t one of the children who was shot in the name of the state’s immoral war on personal choice.
