Agent Juan Burgos-Vélez was shot and killed after he and several officers went to investigate the sounds of gunfire coming a neighborhood near the police station. Because he was just reporting for his shift, he had not yet put on all of his equipment, including his bullet proof vest.
When the officers arrived at the scene, they encountered a gang from a different neighborhood who were attempting to take over drug dealing in the neighborhood. The two gangs were facing off when the officers intervened.
As the officers attempted to disarm the two groups, shots were fired and Agent Burgos-Vélez was struck in the torso. He was transported to a local hospital where he succumbed to his wound a short time later.
Agent Burgos-Vélez had served with the Puerto Rico Police Department for 13 years. He is survived by his wife and three children.
