Funeral Services for Deputy Peter Herrera
Updated On: Apr 02, 2019

The El Paso Municipal Police Officers' Association extends its deepest condolences to the family, loved ones, colleagues and friends of Deputy Peter Herrera #4928 of the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office. 

Deputy Herrera died on Sunday, March 24, 2019, as a result of injuries he sustained after being shot multiple times after conducting a traffic stop on March 22.  Shortly before 2:00 AM, near the intersection of Chicken Ranch Road and Socorro Road in San Elizario, Deputy Herrera stopped a vehicle occupied by a male and a female.  The male, later identified as Facundo Chavez, age 27, exited the vehicle and shot at the deputy multiple times.  Deputy Herrera was unable to return gunfire.  Chavez and the female subsequently fled on foot, but were arrested by responding deputies who found them hiding in a nearby shed. 

Chavez was originally charged with Criminal Attempted Capital Murder of a Peace Officer and Unlawful Possession of a Firearm by a Felon.  The charge will now be upgraded to Capital Murder and the Sheriff’s Office will ask the District Attorney’s Office to seek the death penalty.

A GoFund Me page and a Facebook Fundraiser have been set up to assist with various expenses.  These are the only two legitimate fundraising campaigns authorized.  Click on either or both to donate to assist the family.
