MANCHESTER — Lilian Alonzo, the grandmother shot late last month during a DEA drug raid at her apartment, was picking up an infant when a bullet ripped through her arm and entered her torso, her son told the New Hampshire Union Leader.
The son said agents later tore up Alonzo’s apartment in a search for
drugs. No drugs, weapons or large amounts of cash were found, said
Daniel Nunez, who returned to his home in Florida after spending the
last two weeks with his mother.
“She (Alonzo) went to pick up the baby. They thought she was reaching for something, and they shot her,” Nunez believes.
Armed with a search warrant, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration raided the third-floor apartment at 110 Beech St. on Aug. 27, the day authorities broke up a drug ring that involved the transport and sale of large amounts of oxycodone.
According to police statements and court affidavits, police
confiscated 1,600 tablets in arrests earlier in the day at other
locations. The investigation has netted nine arrests and the
confiscation of $58,000, guns and drugs.
Two of those arrested were Alonzo’s daughters — Johanna Nunez and Jennifer Nunez. Neither lives with their mother.
