The man had entered a dance hall and started waving his hand, which was covered in blood. A struggle ensued when Constable Carpio attempted to arrest him.

Constable Carpio's .45 caliber discharged during the struggle and he was struck in the side.

The subject was arrested and charged with Constable Carpio's murder.

Constable Carpio had been elected as the El Paso County Precinct 3 Constable only four days prior to the shooting. He was survived by his wife.
