On this day in 1990, Texas Department of Public Safety Trooper Mark Jeffrey Phebus was shot and killed while stopping for what he thought was a vehicle accident. Instead, he had come upon a domestic dispute between a husband and wife.

Trooper Phebus was shot and killed during the incident. He was only 23-years old and had been with the agency for less than one year.
