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.

Carlos, as we honor two Alaska State Troopers who lost their lives in the line of duty this past week, I still have tears for you. I fondly remember attending the first Academy that SO's and Troopers were together in Carson City. We were academic competitors and always encouraging each other. You have stayed in my heart all these years. I will never forget you. Prayers to your family.
