21, 2014, and spoke with negotiators for more than five hours before saying he was going to bed, according to a lawsuit filed by his family in federal court Tuesday. About two hours after he got off the phone with negotiators, a SWAT team illegally searched his home and property, the suit states, and found him lying in the trunk of his car with a pistol in his mouth. VIDEOS TOP JOBS As officers yelled and pointed guns at Calzada, the man said nothing, according to the suit, but as he "slowly" reached toward a rifle lying in the trunk with him, three officers fired the fatal volley. Weber County Attorney Chris Allred's office said he was not available for comment Thursday, but he told the Standard Examiner in July that, unlike most other officer-involved shooting reviews, the Calzada investigation was not accompanied by a letter of conclusion from the county attorney's office because it "got lost in the shuffle" during the transition between Allred's administration and the previous county attorney's. The Roy police chief was preparing a statement about the case Thursday, an office spokesman said, and Roy's attorney could not immediately be reached for comment. The SWAT team officers were cleared of allegations of wrongdoing. Calzada's wife, Maria Calzada, and mother, Manuela Rosales, stated in the suit that Calzada's rights were violated when police entered and searched his home without a warrant. Additionally, it says, the SWAT team's use of deadly force was wrong. Calzada "had not broken any law, had threatened no one and was of no danger to anyone other than himself," the suit says. Additionally, a negotiator on the phone "repeatedly reassured [Calzada] that he had done nothing wrong and that law enforcement would not enter his home." In addition to naming the city, county, Roy Police Department and Weber County Sheriff's Office, the suit lists 11 SWAT team members as defendants, one of whom was previously a defendant in a wrongful death suit , which Weber County settled for $100,000. Before the shooting, the suit says, Calzada talked to negotiators all night, had consumed about a gallon of whiskey and took prescription sleeping pills. Police "[found] him in a dazed and drunken stupor" in the trunk of his car, the suit says, and immediately began "shouting at [Calzada] with their guns drawn." Calzada eventually put his hands behind his head, the suit says, but as he allegedly began to reach toward the rifle near him, he was hit with "a firestorm" of 22 bullets.
