The Houston Police Department has released the inventory of items seized during the execution of the no-knock raid where 59-year-old Dennis Tuttle and his wife, 58-year-old Rhogena Nicholas were shot and killed. The raid occurred on January 28, 2019.
The married couple of 20 years died in a gun battle with police where four officers were wounded, and one was injured while taking cover.
The couple had no criminal records. They had occupied the house for 20 years. Rhogena was as a supporter of President Trump. Dennis was a Navy veteran.
The gun battle started when the police broke down their door and shot their dog. The wife, Rhogena, was unarmed when killed. Police claim she was going for a shotgun held by a wounded officer.
There were no body cameras worn on the raid. Neighbor's surveillance video was taken by the police.
The guns listed are unremarkable in every way. They are:
A 20 gauge shotgun is listed as a Beretta ALS. I have not found a Beretta of that model, but

This raises questions as to whether there was any pistol in the home that was raided.
Police assassination and cover up.
If they were Obama supporters, there would be riots nationwide.
this is also an accurate headline
With the shoot-the-dog mindset....eventually, it’ll happen that a cop comes out to shoot some kid’s dog, and the kid grabs a shotgun and kills the cop.
Maybe it’s just me, but in the 1960s and 1970s...I just don’t remember any police or sheriff’s deputies coming out to a house and shooting some guy’s dog. Or did I just miss this stuff?
what is that smell?
Let these be the last people killed in the Drug War.
Enough is enough.
but, "a gram of unknown white powder"!!!!!!
And the 18 grams of mj is about enough for 40 joints.
It always is - besides:
The Beretta AL-2 (probably what this was) was a 300 series gun rebranded by the importer to the US. They were brought in in the 70’s.
Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo said the drug raid on the home stemmed from numerous complaints from neighbors. He said undercover officers had previously made two purchases of black tar heroin from drug dealers at the house.
Armed with a search warrant, nine narcotics detectives backed up by at least six patrol officers surrounded the home just before 5 p.m. on Monday.
After a 54-year-old officer, the lead investigator on the case, broke open the front door, a 33-year-old officer armed with a shotgun entered the residence and was immediately attacked by a pit bull, Acevedo said.
He said that the officer being attacked shot and killed the dog.
One of the suspects, Tuttle, charged from the back of the house firing a revolver at the officer, hitting him in the shoulder.
“He went down and fell on the sofa in the living room,” Acevedo said of the wounded officer. “A female suspect went towards that officer, reached over the officer and started making a move for his shotgun.”
Another officer who entered the house was allegedly shot by Tuttle.
Acevedo said officers opened fire, killing Nicholas and engaged in a gun battle with Tuttle.
Already done. Reported on FR about a week or so back.
Man shot (killed?) officer for shooting his dog.
Wow. These Americans were murdered.
Perhaps the surprising thing about the Roger Stone arrest was not that the level of force used was atypical, but that it is typical.
Used in Iraq and Afghanistan so that one clan could lie and help remove another clan. Informants are usually on low end of credibility.
Funny that there was no heroin found. I guess the police forgot to bring any.
It's a grave injustice that the incompetent entry team isn't in the morgue as opposed to the homeowners - and their dog.
Thugs need to have their lives completely ruined.
The cops f***ed up, now its time to cover-up.
Makes perfect sense.
