Agent Ruben Kuilan-Torres was shot and killed during a robbery attempt as he drove home following his shift.

He was still in uniform when he stopped at a gas station on PR-2, just outside of Vega Alta. Two suspects approached him to rob him and then opened fire when they noticed his uniform. They stole his service weapon before fleeing.

The subjects were apprehended three days later and charged with murder.

Agent Torres had been employed with the Puerto Rico Police Department for 14 years. He is survived by his wife and four children.

In 2001 he had received the department's Medal of Valor award for facing multiple robbery suspects during a shootout.
