Texas Police officers are mourning the loss of two of their own after a fatal ambush on Saturday that ended with the shooter’s suicide.
Officers Edelmiro Garza, 45, and Ismail Chavez, 39, were gunned down while on duty, responding to a call over a domestic complaint incident: “We have lost two brave public servants who sought only to keep peace in our City,” Chief Victor Rodriguez said.
23-year-old Audon Ignacio Camarillo was identified as the shooter. He took his life after those of the two cops: “Two of our finest were killed in the line of duty while working to protect residents in their community,” Gov. Gregg Abbott said. “I’ve spoken with McAllen Police Chief Victor Rodriguez and offered the full support of the State of Texas.”
