September 19th, 2011

Eagle Pass, TX.- Alrededor de las 7 de la noche, falleció el agente de la patrulla fronteriza Alejandro Acevedo, a consecuencia del enfrentamiento a balazos que sostuvo la tarde de este lunes en su residencia, de los apartamentos Azteca en la calle Bibb de esta ciudad.

Acevedo, murió durante una intervención quirúrgica en el hospital, y de acuerdo a los informes del Jefe de Policía Tony Castañeda, sufrió un ataque cardiaco, lo que le provoco la muerte. Anteriormente Omar Olivares de 27 años de edad, la otra persona que participo en la balacera, fue pronunciado muerto por la Juez de Paz del precinto 4 Tere Melendrez, alrededor de las 5 de la tarde.

Las indagatorias de los investigadores del departamento de policía indican, que las dos personas que participaron en la balacera intercambiaron disparos durante largo tiempo, prueba de ellos se localizaron un total de 35 casquillos de bala en diferentes lugares dentro del departamento.

Acevedo, es originario de El Paso, Texas, pero vivía en esta ciudad donde trabajaba como agente de la patrulla fronteriza, al lado de su esposa y dos hijos, un varón y una niña de 4 y 2 años de edad aproximadamente.

Olivares, también originario de El Paso, Texas, se mudo a esta ciudad con el fin de establecer su residencia, y vivía temporalmente en el mismo departamento donde ocurrieron los hechos, pues era primo de la esposa del agente de la patrulla fronteriza.

Las autoridades policiacas, no han establecido los motivos del enfrentamiento, pero se dijo, que aparentemente había diferencias entre ambos.

El agente de la patrulla fronteriza no estaba en servicio al momento de la balacera, y se disponía a cuidar a los dos pequeños que también estaban en el lugar, mientras su conyugue trabajaba como maestra en una de las escuelas públicas de la localidad.

El informe del Jefe de Policía, también señalo que al momento de arribar al lugar, sus oficiales hicieron contacto con el agente de la patrulla fronteriza, quien salió del departamento con una arma en la mano por su propia cuenta, y paso a seguir los oficiales de la ciudad procedieron a desarmarlo, para luego introducirse al interior del departamento, donde encontraron a Olivares tendido en un charco de sangre, y rápidamente auxiliaron a los dos pequeños que se encontraban escondidos en un rincón de un closet, desde donde sumamente atemorizados lloraban a gritos.
