Puerto Rico Police Agent Shot, Killed in Off-Duty Robbery Response

September 13, 2017  | 

The Puerto Rico Police Department reports that Agent Roberto Medina-Mariani was shot and killed Monday in an off-duty incident.

He was inside a restaurant in the Magüeyes neighborhood in Ponce at approximately 10:30 p.m.  when three subjects committed an armed robbery of four victims in front of the building. The subjects then entered the restaurant in an attempt to rob more people. Agent Medina-Mariani observed the robbery and identified himself.

The subjects opened fire and shot him. Despite being mortally wounded, he was able to return fire and wounded one of the men. The wounded suspect was taken into custody at a local hospital. The other two men were arrested a short time later, ODMP.org reports.
