ALE Agent Troy Carr was shot and killed while attempting an arrest of a suspected drunk driver in Fayetteville, North Carolina.

He and two other agents had gone to an establishment to conduct an evening education session for the establishment's employees. When the three arrived, Agent Carr observed a person he believed to be intoxicated exit the establishment and drive away.

Agent Carr followed the suspect and attempted to stop him, at which point the suspect attempted to flee. The man stopped his car and started to run on foot, with Agent Carr in pursuit. The suspect then turned and fired at Agent Carr, striking him. Agent Carr was able to return fire and wound the suspect, who was taken into custody by state troopers who arrived on the scene.

The suspect was convicted of first degree murder on July 3rd, 1996, and sentenced to life in prison.

An overpass bridge on the All American Freeway in Fayetteville was dedicated in Agent Carr's honor.
