Jose Luis Millan was killed in a drug enforcement related shootout with Gonzales County deputies.
Gonzales County Sheriff Glen Sachtleben reported that at 8:45 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 25, deputies were conducting an active, ongoing narcotics investigation when one of the men suddenly opened fire on them.
He said the incident, which occurred in northern Gonzales County on County Road 44B just north of Waelder, left deputies no choice but to return fire, killing 21-year-old Jose Luis Millan in the process. Sachtleben said the shootout took place in a remote pasture in which marijuana was being grown.
