Officer Julio Andino-Rivera was shot and killed while in pursuit of a vehicle driven by a fugitive in the Barrio Obrero neighborhood, Santurce, PR.

At approximately 4:00pm while on motorcycle patrol thru Rexach Avenue, Officer Andino-Rivera noticed a man fitting the description of a prison escapee driving in the area. While pursuing the vehicle the driver pulled out an assault rifle and shot Officer Andino-Rivera, killing him on scene. The suspect who shot him was Jose Perez Aka.
