Agent Hernandez was assigned to the PRPD Narcotics Division as an undercover agent where he infiltrated a drug dealing a gang in the Barazas Sector, Carolina, Puerto Rico. A suspect of the investigation allegedly believed Officer Hernandez to be a Police Informant, and Officer Hernandez was kidnapped by three individuals and taken to a remote location where he was shot once in the abdomen and once in the head.
