José Daniel Argueta Turcios Was Shot Dead By Raleigh Police

José Daniel Argueta Turcios Cause of Death – 50-year-old José Daniel Argueta Turcios was fatally shot by Raleigh police Tuesday afternoon after a crash on Interstate 440. He died after police shot him while officers struggled to detain him. Argueta Turcios was carrying a knife in the incident, Raleigh police said, and Chief Estella Patterson said police shot him after he “swung the knife toward officers.” Tuesday’s shooting took place after Raleigh police responded to a crash just after 1:30 p.m. on the Beltline between exits 12 (Brentwood Avenue) and 13 (U.S. 64 Business/New Bern Avenue).

Patterson said 911 calls indicated a person was intoxicated, and officers were “alerted that an individual was armed with a knife.” Officers approached Argueta Turcios, who Patterson said was walking with a small child and carrying a knife. Officers demanded multiple times that he drop the knife, but Patterson said Argueta Turcios did not comply. Police used a Taser on Argueta Turcios “to try to defuse the situation,” Patterson said. When police held him down and he attempted to get up, police fired at him after “the individual swung the knife toward officers,” she said.

Argueta Turcios received aid on scene and was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Family, friends, and loved ones are devastated and shattered at the completely unexpected passing of José Daniel Argueta Turcios.
