Unarmed Handcuffed Teen Shoots Himself in the Head While In a Police Car

In an astounding feat that defies several of the known laws of nature, a 17 year old North Carolina boy managed to shoot himself in the head while his hands were cuffed behind his back. Allegedly, young Jesus Huerta died while he was alone, locked in the back of a police cruiser, after having been patted down.

Yes, you read that right. The Durham PD is spinning it that way. I couldn’t make this stuff up if I tried. If this is baffling to you, it’s okay. The police chief realizes that if you aren’t a cop, you might not understand how this could happen.

A Durham teen died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head, Durham Police Chief Jose Lopez said Wednesday afternoon at a news conference.

Lopez said a handgun was found in the car and that Huerta was still handcuffed from behind. He said the wound was self-inflicted.

“The medical examiner’s office has confirmed that Jesus Huerta died from a gunshot wound to his head,” Lopez said. “Whether that wound was accidental or intentional is unknown at this time.”

“I know that it is hard for people not in law enforcement to understand how someone could be capable of shooting themselves while handcuffed behind the back,” Lopez said. “While incidents like this are not common, they unfortunately have happened in other jurisdictions in the past.” (source)

Jesus Huerta had been arrested on an outstanding warrant for second degree trespassing at the time of the fatal shooting, which occurred last month.

Huerta’s family is not buying the official story for a second.

Huerta’s family released a statement following the press conference held by Lopez. The family of Huerta said the press conference did not release any new information to the public.

“How did Jesús end up dead in the parking lot at police headquarters in these circumstances?  Searched.  Handcuffed behind the back.  How is it even possible to shoot oneself?” the statement reads. (source)

The Huerta family has presented a petition with 16,000 signatures to the FBI, demanding that the Department of Justice launch a federal investigation into the death of Jesus Huerta.

“We want answers about how my brother died,” said Evelin Huerta in a written release. “But that can’t be taken out of the context of a police department with a history of discriminating against black and Latino people. Durham Police Department has a problem, and it will take the Department of Justice to make sure no one else loses a son and a brother like my family did.” (source)

    The cops might have had a leg to stand on, if this kid was facing a life in prison felony… but who the hell is gonna kill them self because they got charged with “2nd degree trespassing”

    Murder by cop, once again.

    • geo1671

      Chris–just swear at a cop could get you killed,however,most likely the sh!t kicked out of you

  • Rick E.

    While not impossible, this scenario is HIGHLY improbable! What a sad joke.

    I come to thedailysheeple every day because I have very similar concerns and viewpoints of this site. I also happen to be a big city police officer. I won’t defend what happened in this situation or any others that I don’t have knowledge of, but I can tell you some pretty strange sh-t happens every day in this country and around the world in the world of policing. In my own place of assignment two other officers had a grown man in handcuffs behind his back shoot himself in the back of the head and died several weeks later without regaining consciousness. The arresting officer was certainly at fault for not searching and finding the gun in his waistband in the small of his back (and she was disciplined for it and has since resigned). In this case, the police car was held as a crime scene and our Homicide unit processed it as such. All the evidence indicated the suspect shot himself in the head: trajectory of the bullet through his head and out the roof of the car, blood spatter, position of the body with gun in hand, the gun was the suspect’s, etc. Strange stuff. How about a male suspect in a jail cell who was found to have hidden a .38 revolver with a 4″ barrel in his rectum, or a female suspect with a .25 cal. semiauto in her vagina. Or a female suspect who got her handcuffed hands from the back to the front by taking them up over her head (under the legs is the usual method) and in the process breaking both shoulders? There is certainly police misconduct, but there are also some things that happen that fall into the category of “Truth is stranger than fiction.” Just sayin.

    Either this case or a similar one broke about a month ago. If it was this one, how is it that no further details of where he was hit, what angle, and which way the bullet came at him, have emerged? Did the bullet ballistically match the gun in the cop car? Was the gun in the man’s hands after he was shot? What was the provenance of the gun? Surely with a serial number and make, they can determine its chain of custody to at least some extent, so where did it come from?

    Why are all of these details still secret, when they’re generally open knowledge in other cases of suicide?

  • Andy Fife

    It is remotely possible. It is highly probable he was murdered, since cops murder 500 INNOCENT Americans yearly, much more dangerous than “terrorists” .

    DEREGISTER…………do not consent to these vomitstains in office.

  • Andy Fife

    wow.

  • Sooriamoorthy

    Well, in the US, the land where ALL COPS are MURDERERS, this is certainly possible; at least according to the official version provided by the same pigs and various other sows.

  • Sunray

    The FBI needs to get a move on because cover ups take time to get entrenched BUT they know that…dont they

  • TerryHuggles

    Which ever way the pigs spin it, Jesus Huerta was in the charge. Someone needs to go to jail for his death.

  • Fred Farkle

    Anyone who refuses to believe the officially approved version of this story is obviously a terrorist.

    This sounds about as believable as someone biting their own face off.

  • Darin

    An unarmed person with hands cuffed behind their back shooting themself in the head has never happened before. Police murdering someone then saying they committed suicide…happens all the time.
    Then again, this guy was being arrested for 2ND DEGREE TRESSPASSING! Clearly his life was over and he had nothing to look forward to but life in prison.

  • Warp+1

    He found the gun on the floor of the police car. After untying his shoe (don’t ask me how he did that) he managed to take his shoe off and insert his little toe (his big toe was too big) into the trigger housing and while attempting to sever the handcuffs with a bullet (being a poor shot) he accidentally shot himself to death. After accidentally killing himself he managed to put his shoe back on and tie it (don’t ask me how) so no one would suspect the truth of what actually happened.

    Case closed.

  • Dadwasright

    The f b i ? Don’t they work for Holder ? . .I am curious where was he shot in the head , front , back , side , left – right , top ? I wasn’t there , I cant say for sure . I can say this . If it walks like a duck , looks like a duck , quacks like a duck , it’s probably a duck .

  • Rogoraeck

    If a plane kerosene melt steel & collapse a high building WTC
    Then it’s possible to shoot yourself while hand cuffed to your back with a gun left in the car accidentally by the police!
    Trust me! I am a “respected” scientist. would I lie to you??

  • Scott Bayer

    This is not BS. I heard of a man that shot himself in the head 2 times while handcuffed and hog tied.He was in the county jail at the time and the Warden said it happened so it must be true!

  • kctruth

    Shortly before his death, the suspect Huerta told the arresting officer, “I’ll be back on the streets in 24 hours, and the first thing I’m going to do when I get out is kill your wife and rape your daughter.”

    I don’t know if this happened or not, but it wouldn’t be unusual and you might understand the fury of the threatened cop who shot the perp in a moment of anger.

  • JoBrown85

    The people of Durham city should unite and make this statement: “We the people of Durham city have had enough of police brutality and murder of our citizens, and we do not believe for one second the bullsh!t story that a handcuffed kid shot himself in the head in the back of a police car. Until the police officer(s) responsible for his murder is/are delivered to us -dead or alive- we will execute one police officer or police officer’s family member per day.”
    Once the killing starts, I wonder how quickly the other thugs in uniform will deliver up their murderous comrade to face justice from the people.

  • Beatrix Muircastle

    lemme guess he cut himself shaving? the blue wall doesn’t seem to care if cops kill any one any more considering all the brutal beating deaths, the long term medical injuries from being tackled, tased, or shot with little to no provication…. why don’t they just man up an admit they killed him? after all they’ll be protected while good cops that blow the whistle can get punished.
