Off-Duty Texas Officer Ambushed, Killed Outside His Business

May 06, 2014  | 

An off-duty Balcones Heights, Texas, police officer died late Sunday after being shot multiple times on the Northwest Side of San Antonio.

Officer Julian Pesina, 29, was closing up and leaving the tattoo parlor that he owns in the 2800 block of Hillcrest Drive, near Shadyview Drive just after 10 p.m., authorities said, when the shooting occurred.

Two masked men ambushed Pesina in the parking lot, shooting him multiple times with a shotgun and a handgun, authorities told the San Antonio Express-News.

Sgt. Joe McKinney of the San Antonio Police Department said Monday morning that police did not know the identities of the men who shot Pesina, or their motive. San Antonio police are investigating the case.

Sounds more like an execution than a robbery. Rest in Peace my friend.

Hopefully they find these executioners, expedite the trial, and lethal injection death sentence.

Why an officer of the law had a business of rebelious subculture? What really lead to his murder? As far as I know, he did not die in line of duty. Let the investigation take its own course.

Rest in peace Ofc Pesina. My sincere condolences to your family and to your department. Godspeed as you now patrol the streets of gold. This was no a random robbery they literally tore him apart. Take them and hang them.
