Jaime Zapata Honored with Street Name
New at ten tonight.
Over 200 people witness some monumental changes going on in our neighboring town of Falcon, Texas all for a local hero.
That's where an unveiling took place to rename a street after fallen ice agent Jaime Zapata.
It's been a little over year since he was ambushed and shot down in Mexico by members of the Zetas.
Zapata grew up in the Falcon area and people say his efforts to fight cartel crime will never be forgotten.
A monument was also unveiled with Zapata's name and image to be placed near Highway 83 for public viewing.
Government agents and officials, including representative Ryan Guillen attended the ceremony.
