Trooper Borland was shot and killed when he stopped a car on I-80, just outside of Lovelock, Nevada, whose driver was wanted for not paying for gasoline. Unbeknownst to Trooper Borland, the suspect had just murdered two people in Texas and the vehicle was stolen. Before stopping the vehicle Trooper Borland had requested a check on the plates, but the plates had not yet been entered into NCIC. As he approached the vehicle the man pulled out a .38 caliber handgun and shot him in the head.

The suspect was apprehended later that day. He was convicted of Trooper Borland's murder and sentenced to death.

Trooper Borland had served with the agency for 1 year.

I worked with Carlos' father at a gold mine for a couple years. I had no idea they were related until I asked. Carlos looked a lot like his dad. I was traveling I-80 that night to Reno. I had been home in Reno when the incident occurred. I was dreaming of working for the NHP at the time. I was 19 years old then. I remember cutting the article out of the paper and saving it and feeling so sad. Any time I passed the cross that used to stand at mile marker 108 (I think it was), I would salute Trooper Borland. It's something I have never forgotten any time I am on that stretch of road after all these years.
