David Arron Jones

Deputy Sheriff David Jones was shot and killed while attempting to serve an arrest warrant that stemmed from a domestic dispute.

As Deputy Jones and his partner approached the home, they were greeted with gunfire. Deputy Jones was struck in the chest and killed. His partner was able to retreat to the patrol car and escape while being fired upon.

The partner called for backup and after a 90-minute standoff, Deputy Jones' body was recovered from the porch. The suspects surrendered four hours later as Texas Rangers prepared to storm the house.

Deputy Jones was a Korean War veteran, and he was survived by his parents.

He was buried in the Maverick County Cemetery in Eagle Pass, Texas.
