    Restaurant Security Guard Fatally Shoots Knife-Wielding Attacker

    washingtonpost.com

    A Fairfax County man, involved in a brawl outside a Springfield area restaurant, was shot to death early yesterday by a security guard who told police he was acting in self-defense.

    The incident started inside Cafe Milano, in a shopping center just off Backlick Road, shortly before 1 a.m. Police said that a fight started in the bar area of the restaurant, and that a uniformed private security guard hired by the restaurant escorted one of the fighters outside.

    When the 23-year-old guard and the man stepped outside, the guard told police, he was jumped by three or four other men, at least one of whom wielded a knife. Fairfax Officer Don Gotthardt said the man holding the knife was Yordy Adaud Salguero Urmeneta, 27, of the Springfield area, and that he had advanced toward the guard, whose name was not released.

    The guard said that he feared for his life and fired one shot, striking Salguero Urmeneta in the stomach, Gotthardt said. Salguero Urmeneta fell, and the other men picked him up, placed him in a white van and fled.

    Officers found the van parked outside of Salguero Urmeneta's house on Cather Road, with the wounded man and two others inside, Gotthardt said. Salguero Urmeneta was taken to Inova Fairfax Hospital, where he died at 5 a.m., police said.

    The two men with Salguero Urmeneta when he was found were interviewed and released, and Gotthardt said they were considered suspects. The security guard, who police said was legally carrying the gun, was not charged, although the case will be presented to the Fairfax commonwealth's attorney for a decision on whether the shooting was justifiable and whether the other men should be prosecuted.

    Since May 6, Fairfax police reported being called to Cafe Milano, at 6961 Hechinger Dr., on 32 occasions, for complaints ranging from loitering to drugs, Gotthardt said.

    Salguero Urmeneta's wife, Blanca Cruz, said that he was making his first or second visit to the restaurant, and that he didn't frequent the place because "it's a bad influence. His friends said he doesn't like to go to that place." Cruz said Salguero Urmeneta was a native of Honduras and had a 6-year-old daughter there. She said he moved to this country in 2000 and worked for a flooring company.

    Cruz said the couple had been married four years. "He wasn't a bad guy," Cruz said in Spanish through a family member. "He just goes out and sometimes has fun."

    Cruz said she did not know how she would support herself now. "He was the only help that I had," she said. "I just want to know if they're going to do something about it. It was a fight, but he didn't have a gun." She said her husband did not carry a knife, and "he never has nothing on him when he goes out."
    Tough situation for the guard.

    The family always says that the one killed was an upstanding member of the community. He walked on water the friends say.

    Cool

    Do they have the knife as evidence? Any witnesses?

    Was he a citizen, registered alien, or an illegal alien? Here since 2000 y no habla english? . . .

    Yes, "my son was the greatest, he always gave me presents (stolen) Hardley never beats his sister, goes to church and donates (stolen) money. Only beats his girlfriend, when she deserves it....But he was an angel, a saint and didn't deserve to be killed. What do you expect a mother to say?
