Agent Edwin Roman-Acevedo was shot and killed while off duty when he intervened in a robbery at a pharmacy on at the intersection of PR-850 and PR-846, in Trujillo Alto.

He was in the pharmacy's parking lot when he observed two armed subjects approaching the entrance. A struggle ensued for his service weapon when he identified himself as an officer. The second subject shot Officer Roman-Acevedo during the struggle. Despite the wound, Agent Roman-Acevedo was able to maintain control of his weapon and returned fire, wounding one of the men.

Agent Roman-Acevedo was transported to Rio Piedras Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.

Both subjects fled but one was taken into custody at a nearby hospital after seeking treatment for the gunshot wound. The second subject was arrested by the FBI as a result of the ensuing investigation.

Agent had served in law enforcement for 10 years. He is survived by his wife and one child.
