The Bexar County Sheriff’s Office is mourning the loss of Deputy Noah Calderon, 20.

Deputy Calderon, who started his career with the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office in July of 2018, was the first deputy to join at the age of 18 years old, as the BCSO’s first ever ‘Blue Shirt’ deputy. Deputy Calderon was assigned to the Detention Bureau and was planning on attending the Basic Peace Officer’s Academy to work on obtaining his Texas Peace Officer’s License.

Deputy Calderon, who was off-duty at the time of the accident, was travelling to Corpus Christi, TX with his fiancée and his younger brother. Deputy Calderon and his fiancée succumbed to injuries as a result of the accident, while his younger brother was airlifted back to San Antonio by AirLIFE, where he remains in critical condition. The Calderon family are in need of your prayers at this time.

Deputy Noah Calderon leaves behind his father, East Patrol Sergeant Edward Calderon, his mother Kristie, his sister Celina, sister in law Iris, and his brothers Luke, Ryan, and Joshua. As an agency we are mourning the loss of this bright and young deputy who had a very promising career ahead of him, he will be greatly missed.

On May 24, 1914, just a few hours after Deputy Arthur Taylor became a deputy he was assigned to arrest a suspect who was terrorizing a neighborhood with a rifle.

The Houston Police Department also responded to the scene, but they were not aware Deputy Taylor was at the scene.

While HPD Officer Richardson and Cordona were conducting the investigation they heard gunshots and ran towards them. Deputy Taylor and HPD Detective Parsons also heard the gunshots and ran to the same area.

HPD Officer Richardson saw a man running towards them in the darkness and noticed he, Deputy Taylor, had a pistol in his hand. Richardson ordered him to stop and throw down his pistol. When he refused, Officer Richardson began shooting and struck Deputy Taylor two times, killing him instantly.

HPD Detective Parsons, who also responded when he heard the gunshots, and Officer Cordona, seeing another man approaching them with his arm raised and a pistol in his hand, began to fire their pistols at Parsons striking him four times. Detective Parsons also died at the scene.

Deputy Taylor and HPD Detective Parsons lost their lives due to a case of mistaken identity while in the performance of their duties.

Deputy Taylor was the 2nd deputy to die in the line of duty.

Gone but never forgotten.
