Agent Jose Bernabe-Gonzalez and Agent Pedro Sanchez-Lopez were fatally shot on by two suspects who had just stolen a car. His partner also died in the confrontation.

At about 10:40 pm both officers were patrolling the Camino Alejandrino in Caimito when they noticed two people stealing a vehicle in a parking lot. When the officers announced themselves, both suspects fled with the stolen vehicle, beginning a chase until they reached the public housing complex Villa Esperanza. Once in the parking lot of the public housing complex, one of the men opened fire on the patrol car from approximately 50 yards away. Agent Bernabe-Gonzalez died while attending to Agent Sanchez-Lopez who was seriously wounded when he had been shot while he was out of the car. Both officers died in the scene.

Agent Bernabe-Gonzalez served with the Puerto Rico Police Department for nine years and was assigned to the Precinct 462 Caimito. He is survived by his parents.
