Sergeant Jenkins was shot and killed after making a traffic stop of a robbery suspect on I-95 shortly after midnight. Sergeant Jenkins had stopped an older model vehicle in response to a bulletin put out by a neighboring jurisdiction in Florida which was looking for the suspect in several armed robberies which had happened earlier in the evening. During the stop Sergeant Jenkins ordered the suspect to exit and approach the rear of the vehicle. However, the suspect stood in doorway of the vehicle. Sergeant Jenkins again ordered the suspect to approach the rear of the vehicle as the suspect reached inside saying he was retrieving his license. He immediately turned and fired the first of four shots only several seconds after Sergeant Jenkins first ordered him out of the vehicle. As Sergeant Jenkins was laying on the ground the suspect took his handgun and shot him in the head, killing him. The entire incident occurred in less than 20 seconds, 13 of which Sergeant Jenkins was being fired upon.

A passing truck driver witnessed part of the incident and called for help using Sergeant Jenkins' radio. The trucker was able to give a description of the vehicle and the suspect was arrested approximately four hours later.

Sergeant Jenkins had been with the agency for seven years and had been in law enforcement for 11 years. His agency awarded him Officer of the Year in 1999. He is survived by his wife and five children.

Officer Pimentel was killed when his cruiser was struck by a tractor trailer while he was on a traffic stop at 2300 hours. The accident occurred on a five lane highway just inside the city limits. Officer Pimentel's vehicle was parked on the curb lane with more than one mile of visibility from the rear. The tractor trailer drifted to the side of the road due to driver fatigue and struck Officer Pimentel's cruiser, which was pushed into the other vehicle. The driver of the other car was injured.

Officer Pimentel is survived by his wife, two small children, parents, and brother.
