NM cops just released this dashcam and bodycam video from Officer Jarrott he had pulled over Omar Felix Cueva on Feb. 4 on the I-10 outside Las Cruces. Jarrott told Cueva he was being stopped because his window tint was too dark. Cueva was initially cooperative, but the stop took an ugly turn when Jarrott asked Cueva if he had any firearms.
Jarrott saw a weapon inside Cueva’s truck as he was stepping out of the vehicle and asked Cueva if he could take it off him … as he put it, “for my safety?” Those would be one of Jarrott’s last words. As Cueva stepped out of the truck, Jarrott couldn’t see him lift an AR-15-style rifle which he unloaded at the officer as they got to the back of the car.
You hear Jarrott yell, “Oh, s**t!” as the bullets started flying. Cops say Jarrott went down immediately, and Cueva ran over to him and fired several more rounds at point-blank range before fleeing the scene.

That’s how good he was,” Baisa said.
From his school to local first responders, Officer Jarrott is being honored throughout the town. Maureen Thornock owns the restaurant Jarrott worked at as a teenager.
