Pedro Junior "Pete" Mejia

Detective Pete Mejia died from complications as the result of contracting COVID-19 in a presumed exposure while on duty.

Detective Mejia was a U.S. Army veteran. He had served with the Pasadena Police Department for 16 years and was assigned to the Narcotics Division. He is survived by his daughters, mother, brother, sister, and maternal grandparents.

Beginning in early 2020, thousands of law enforcement officers and other first responders throughout the country contracted COVID-19 during the worldwide pandemic due to requirements of their job. Many of these first responders have died as a result of COVID-19, and continue to do so as the virus spreads across the United States.
