Agent Geniel Amaro-Fantauzzi succumbed to gunshot wounds sustained one week earlier when he and several other agents were conducting a narcotics investigation at the April Gardens 1 public housing complex, on Carretera 917, in Las Piedras.
A subject in the complex opened fire on the agents, wounding Agent Amaro-Fantauzzi and a second agent. The man who shot them was arrested and charged with five counts of attempted murder in addition to other charges.
Agent Amaro-Fantauzzi was transported to Rio Piedras Medical Center, where he remained on life support until succumbing to his wounds.
