Location:   Ponce, PR   USA   Wed. Jul. 31, 2019
Summary: Officer Pedro Rodriguez-Mateo succumbed to injuries sustained the previous day when he was attacked by an inmate at the Ponce Maximum Security Facility.

Officer Rodriguez-Mateo was supervising inmate visitation when he observed a visitor pass an item to an inmate. He had the inmate removed from the visitation area so he could be searched. During the search, the inmate attacked Officer Rodriguez-Mateo and disarmed him of his baton. The inmate, who was serving a 71-year sentence for a triple murder, struck Officer Rodriguez-Mateo several times, causing him to suffer a skull fracture.

The inmate was subdued and remains in custody and was charged with first-degree murder of a correctional officer.
