Constable Lee Jones was shot and killed by a subject he had just arrested for attempted murder.

Constable Jones struck the man with his blackjack during the arrest and, feeling he no longer posed a threat, placed him in his patrol car without handcuffing him. During the drive to jail the man attacked Constable Jones, took his gun, and fatally shot.

The man fled to Mexico and was never apprehended.

Rest in Peace Constable Lee Olen Jones. Thank You for your Service and Sacrifice protecting the citizens of Cameron County, Texas.

I Pray for Peace for your Family and for the men and women that still serve Cameron County. I also Pray that the hounds of hell are gnawing on the bones of your murderer as his soul is being burned up in the lake of fire!

Amen
