Specialists have delivered the name of a West Texas man who was executed in a shootout with sheriff’s agents toward the end of last year as they sought after him for purportedly abusing his parole.
Ector County Sheriff Mike Griffis on Tuesday distinguished the man as Remigio Pineda, who was on parole for having a controlled substance and a firearm, the Odessa American announced. In 2015, Pineda, of Odessa, was among the overcomers of a jail transport crash that left two prison guards and eight detainees dead.
Pineda was executed on Dec. 10 after a rapid pursuit with representatives. Griffis said Pineda discharged six shots of the representatives in the wake of escaping the vehicle and escaping by walking. One appointee was harmed and taken to an emergency clinic.
Agents lethally shot the 40-year-old as he was attempting to clear a jam in his self-loader gun, Griffis said.
Griffis didn’t react to an email Wednesday from The Associated Press requesting more insights concerning Pineda’s killing.
Pineda was one of three detainees met by the Odessa American after the 2015 accident that happened when their transport slipped off a cold highway and crashed into a Union Pacific cargo train.
“I see everything streak through my brain. It’s something from out of this world,” he told the paper. “At the point when I get out, I need to do a great deal of electing to help others and help them not go to these spots. I trust no one actually experiences anything like that once more.”
