-The Harris County Sheriff’s Office says a detention officer has died of natural causes in the line of duty. It happened during an altercation with an inmate.
Tronoski Jones died at about 4am Thursday after dealing with a combative inmate at the Baker Street Jail. Sheriff Ron Hickman says the inmate reportedly became argumentative and combative while being moved from one area back to his cell. Sources tell us the inmate was pepper sprayed. The deputy then took the inmate down to the clinic to be evaluated. That is where the deputy collapsed. He was unable to be resuscitated.
“We have no indication of any outward injury as a result of the conflict with the inmate,” said Sheriff HIckman. “Although the inmate was combative, we don’t know at any point whether that contributed to his death.”
Sources tell us that pepper spray used during the altercation may have played a role in the deputy’s death. The sheriff says it’s impossible to know the exact cause until an autopsy is complete.
Officer Jones joined the Harris County Sheriff’s Office in November 2011. He is survived by his wife and two children, his mother and a number of siblings.
“Any time we suffer a loss in the line of duty, the collective law enforcement community rally to support the family and loved ones of the fallen officer,” said Sheriff Hickman.
An investigation into the circumstances surrounding Jones’ death is underway. No outward signs of an injury were visible, said the sheriff. However, the department would not elaborate beyond that the cause of death was natural.

  1. I heard from a HCSO jail gaurd that said he must have had an underlying medical condition.

    Who knows though you know
    I guess only certain black lives matter.

  2. “There is another class of coloured people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs — partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.”

  3. And as far as I can tell, not a single peep uttered by QX and his bunch about the loss of a black life…guess black lives only matter to them when it is the life of a criminal.
