KENDALL COUNTY, Texas — Speaking to reporters Tuesday, Kendall County Sheriff Al Auxier released the identity of a deputy who was struck and killed during a traffic stop on I-10 Tuesday as Carlos Ramirez.
"This is a reminder of the sacrifices that law enforcement officers all across this county make every day," Auxier said. "Every time they put on their uniform as they go out to try to make their communities a safer place to live."
Deputy Ramirez had been with the sheriff's department since 2016, Auxier said. Ramirez also served as an Army reservist and had recently been deployed to Africa.
