It was to be Trooper Moises Sanchez's final surgery from being shot in the line of duty back in April. Trooper Sanchez was shot in the head and shoulder after responding to a traffic accident where the driver fled the scene. After a foot pursuit, the Trooper attempted to take the fleeing driver into custody when he was gunned down. For nearly five months after the shooting, his condition seemed to be improving. Sadly, Moises suffered severe complications following the last of many surgeries related to his gunshot wounds and he has passed away. Trooper Moises Sanchez had proudly served the Texas Department of Public Safety since 2015. Prior to his time as a State Trooper, he served his country in the United States Marine Corps until military retirement. He leaves behind a wife and three children. Moises had just celebrated his 49th birthday.
