Manteca police: Man killed by officer was armed

MANTECA, CA - Manteca police say the man shot and killed by one of their officers Wednesday evening was a parolee who was armed with a weapon as he approached the officer.

The dead man was identified as Ernest Manuel Duenez Jr., 34.

Police spokesman Officer Jason Hensley said Duenez was a passenger in a vehicle pulled over during a traffic stop about 6:45 p.m. on the 200 block of Flores Avenue. Hensley said the officer reported the armed Duenez got out of the vehicle and advanced on him.

30 gang members arrested in Tracy sweep

TRACY, CA -- After a joint effort with California Department of Justice, the San Joaquin Sheriff's Department and the Tracy Police Department, 30 gang members are now off the streets.

Operation Gateway lasted just a few hours on Thursday but allowed more than 200 officers and agents to execute 24 search warrants and arrest 30 known gang members.

Tracy Police Chief Janet Theissen said the warrants started with a tip 11 months ago, and turned into an investigation that destroyed the Nuestra Familia and Nortena gang structure.

"We dealt a very big blow to them today and we did take off the head," said Tracy Police Sgt. Terry Miller.

John Gaines of the Department of Justice said this, and other operations like it, targeted leaders in the gangs so they could dismantle them.

But he also said they're not done.
