CPD officer shot police officer’s husband as they struggled over weapon she threatened to kill herself with: prosecutors


A Chicago police officer gunned down her husband as the couple struggled over a gun they threatened to kill themselves with during an argument at their Northwest Side home, Cook County prosecutors said on Friday.

When Jacqueline Villasenor, 39, pulled out a 9mm handgun and threatened to kill herself, her husband, also a Chicago cop, attempted to take the gun away from her, prosecutors told Judge Susana Ortiz.

As the couple continued to struggle for the weapon, German Villasenor, 44, was shot in the chest; the bullet stabbed her heart and came out of her back before lodging in a wall, prosecutors said.

The couple’s 16-year-old son heard the gunshot and went to his parents’ upstairs bedroom in the 8500 block of West Winona Street. There, the boy saw his father lying on his back and his mother performing CPR on him, prosecutors said.

Jacqueline Villasenor told her son to get his medical kit out of his car and call 911, which the boy did, prosecutors said.

An officer on leave, who heard the radio call of the shooting, was the first at the scene, prosecutors said. Jacqueline Villasenor spoke to this officer about the argument, which involved a previous case she had had, and the fight over the weapon, prosecutors said.

This officer noted that Jacqueline Villasenor’s breath smelled of alcohol, prosecutors said. She would not have wanted to undergo a breathalyzer prescribed by the CPD to determine her level of intoxication.

Because Jacqueline Villasenor threatened to kill herself, paramedics also called an ambulance to take her to hospital, but she did not want to go, prosecutors said.

German Villasenor was taken to the Lutheran General Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. The German and Jacqueline Villasenor both tested positive for bullet residue on their hands, but their son did not, prosecutors said.

“Her husband tried to save her life by grabbing this gun and he was killed because of it,” Deputy State Attorney James Murphy said.

In addition to her son, Jacqueline Villasenor has an adult daughter, her lawyer Tim Grace told Ortiz.

The judge first ordered Jacqueline Villasenor’s detention on $ 100,000 on bail for manslaughter, but then lowered it to $ 50,000 when Grace said she did not have enough money to file a claim. deposit for the latter amount.

Ortiz told Jacqueline Villasenor that she cannot use intoxicants while on bail and that she must turn over any gun licenses and ammunition still in her possession to the police.

– Yes, judge, replied Jacqueline Villasenor gently.

All guns were removed from the house by Chicago police after the shooting, Grace said.

If Jacqueline Villasenor is convicted, she can be put to the test or from 3 to 14 years in prison.

She is expected to return to court on November 23.
