Jaime Primera Rodriguez

Sergeant Jaime Rodriguez, a member of the Trans Pecos Drug Task Force, was shot and killed while conducting a drug search of a Greyhound bus in Pecos, Texas at 1000 hours.

He and two other members of the task force had boarded the bus, which was traveling from Abilene to El Paso, Texas and were questioning a suspect.

When Sergeant Rodriguez asked the man for identification, the suspect produced a handgun from behind his back. A struggle ensued and the suspect was able to fire two shots, striking Sergeant Rodriguez in the stomach and chest, and a bystander in the back. The other deputies on the bus returned fire and killed the suspect. Sergeant Rodriguez was flown to a local hospital where he succumbed to his wounds.

Sergeant Rodriguez had been a member of the Andrews Department of Public Safety for five years, and had been a U.S. Border Patrol agent for one year. He is survived by his wife, daughter, and son.
