PHOENIX (CBS/AP) Shots rang out, a family lay dead, and the sound of hate was on the line.
A shocking 911 call captured a deadly home invasion and double murder, which, Arizona police say, was perpetrated by anti-illegal immigration extremists trying to raise money for their cause.
On May 30, in rural Arivaca, Ariz., three intruders, disguised as law enforcement officers, entered the home of Raul Junior Flores, 29. They shot and killed Flores and his daughter Brisenia Flores, 9. Flores' wife then called 911 when suddenly the intruders returned and fired into the home.
Flores' wife was shot, but she got a gun and fired back, wounding one of the assailants. The wife's name is not being released at this time.
Amazingly, much of the exchange was caught on the 911 call.
Police believe three people connected to a hardline anti-illegal immigration group, the Minutemen American Defense, are behind the attack and were motived by the belief that Flores sold drugs and would have money to steal. Police say the trio hoped to use the stolen money to fund the operations of the group.
Jason Eugene Bush, 34, Shawna Forde, 41, and Albert Robert Gaxiola, 42, have been charged with two counts each of first-degree murder and other charges, said Sheriff Clarence Dupnik of Pima County, Arizona.
