Death – Obituary – Accident and Crime News : Bucks County Corrections Officer Arrested for Alleged Involvement in Violent Killing

In a shocking turn of events, a Bucks County Department of Corrections officer was arrested while on duty last Saturday for his alleged involvement in a violent murder case in New York City. According to court filings, Officer Aaron A. Mayers, 25, of Doylestown Township, is accused of taking part in the killing of a man.

The arrest took place at the Bucks County Correctional Facility on Easton Road (Route 611) after the U.S. Marshals Service and Doylestown Township police received a warrant for Mayers’ arrest. Without incident, Mayers was apprehended while working in the jail and is currently being held at the Montgomery County Correctional Facility pending an extradition hearing.

The arrest warrant issued in Bucks County charges Mayers with second-degree murder in New York. Court papers filed in Queens reveal that Mayers was arrested in connection with a homicide that occurred on October 20. The details of his alleged role in the crime have not been disclosed, but the basis for the charges is outlined in the court documents.

According to an NYPD detective, one of the suspects involved in the incident punched a man who was standing near his car. Subsequently, other suspects joined in and attacked the man. The situation escalated when one of the suspects entered the victim’s vehicle and struck him with a door before fleeing the scene. Tragically, the victim succumbed to his injuries after being transported to a nearby hospital.

The victim has been identified as Francisco Ortega, 50. Initially, detectives suspected that Ortega had been struck by a passing vehicle, but upon reviewing security camera footage, they discovered that it was an intentional attack, believed to be connected to a road rage incident.

Mayers has been employed by Bucks County since July 2022, according to county spokesperson James O’Malley. As the investigation continues, both the Bucks County Department of Corrections and the New York authorities are working together to ensure a thorough examination of the case.

This arrest has sent shockwaves through the community, raising concerns about the hiring and vetting processes for law enforcement personnel. The Bucks County Department of Corrections will undoubtedly face scrutiny as they review their protocols and procedures to prevent such incidents from occurring in the future.
