The vehicle pulled into a gas station near the border with Scottsdale city. A subject armed with a rifle exited the car, steadied the rifle on the roof, and opened fire. Officer Cabrera was struck in the head by one of the rounds before he exited his patrol car. Three subjects fled the scene on foot but were all apprehended.

Officer Cabrera was transported to Scottsdale Healthcare Osborn Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.

Officer Jair Cabrera was an outstanding police officer and more importantly a fine human being. He was never one for allowing his circumstances to get him down. Rather he always attempted to see the bright side of a situation and look for that silver lining. I feel so very fortunate to have known Jair and to have enjoyed his special spirit (which was always positive). I am also very thankful to know that he is now in a better place where there is no more weeping but only joy.

Well done good and faithful servant.
