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 man attempted to flee. The man stopped his car in a driveway in the 4500 block of Yadkin Road and started to run on foot, with Agent Carr in pursuit. The suspect then turned and fired at Agent Carr, fatally 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.

I met Troy in the law enforcement training at cape fear. He just had one of those magnetic personalities you couldn't resist being friends with. I was an outsider at that time being from New York, but Troy welcomed me with open arms and we became good friends immediately. When he became an ALE agent I was was happy for him, he was grinning ear to ear with that smile of his. Troy made such an impact in my life that from the day he was taken from us I made up my mind that my 1st born son would be named Troy.. I had my son on April 8th 2001 and proudly named him Troy.. I speak of Troy often to my son and remind him of where his name came from and the honor he should feel for carrying his name. Thank You Troy for your friendship and your bravery, you will NEVER be forgotten
