    BAD: Home Invasion owner killed

    ksl.com - Police look for suspects in fatal shooting

    Home invasion Friday morning in Salt Lake City, sounds more like an assassination.

    Early this morning, a 38-year-old Julio Balderama was shot and killed in his home. It happened just before 1:30 near 1800 South and 400 East in Salt Lake City.

    Police are calling this a home-invasion and are now saying the shooting was drug related. They also say the victim had an extensive criminal record. They say he'd spent time in prison for violent crimes, as well as for drugs.


    April

    Julio Balderama's daughter, April, was visiting him last night. She says everything happened so quickly. She noticed the two men were wearing bandannas, so she couldn't see their faces, but she said they knocked down the door, shot her father and sped off.

    April said, "I was right there, and he died in my arms, and nobody's going to know what that's like, and I just want whoever did it to get caught. He might have had a criminal background, but it wasn't that bad, it wasn't blown out of proportion. It wasn't like he should have died over that."

    Early this morning, April called 911 saying her father had been shot. By the time police arrived, he was dead on the living room floor. He was shot in the chest.

    Some neighbors are still in shock. Wendy Mitchell says she heard a scream and looked over to see their neighbor kneeling over her father's body. "Our bedroom window on the rear looks out right to the living room floor, so we could see everything," she said.


    Neighbor Dustin Michell said Balderama was a nice, friendly guy. "I loved that guy," he said.

    Right now, detectives are still conducting interviews to find out who committed this crime. Aaron Herrera, a family friend, said, "It seems so senseless. He was a really good guy. He took really good care of his kids, you know, and he's just a fun guy to hang around with."

    Police are interviewing the owners of a white Toyota Corolla seen leaving the area of 1800 South and 400 East. They're not sure if those owners are connected to this case.
    Looks like SLCPD may have arrested the shooters already.

    ksl.com - 3 suspects arrested in fatal shooting

    KSL News) Salt Lake police arrested three people overnight believed to be connected to a fatal shooting in Salt Lake City.

    Acting on some leads, police caught up with 21-year-old Juan Padilla, 20-year-old Carissa Hyde and 19-year-old Arthur Spencer.

    Police believe they had something to do with the fatal shooting of Julio Balderama. Early Friday morning, two masked men kicked down Balderama's door, shot him and then ran away. He died in his daughter's arms.

    Balderama had an extensive criminal history involving violent crimes and drugs.

    Just one of the dangers of being in that line of work.

    However, it is a good description of how fast a home invasion can go down.
    If your door was kicked in as you read this, how long would it take for you to bring your weapon into play?

    Good riddance.

    He sounded like a scumbag anyway.

    The assassins probably saved the taxpayers of Utah a lot of money by killing him.
    That's right, this sweet baby was made in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Retails for about a hundred and nine, ninety five. It's got a walnut stock, cobalt blue steel, and a hair trigger. That's right. Shop smart. Shop S-Mart. You got that?

    I thought that the drug trade considered it...'early retirement'?

    You mean AFTER they got through FIVE 100+ lbs dogs? I can reach an AK pistol (two loaded handguns and a 000 loaded Model 12 shotgun) in LESS than ten seconds. And they would have a difficult time 'kicking down' my metal door.

    And like I said, they would FIRST have to get past my dogs.
