Authorities say Harris and his brother-in-law Steven Alexander Stewart broke into the mobile home, which the cartel was using as its hideout, in the early morning hours of April 8 to steal narcotics and cash. Harris had donned a bulletproof vest, mask, and gloves for the raid.

The shooting began after the couple confronted a cartel member, Alonso Beltrán Lara, 18, when they broke into the hideout. Alamance County Sheriff Terry Johnson said Harris and Stewart shot dead the cartel member after refusing to say where the drugs and cash were.

The cartel member was found with bandaged feet and two gunshot wounds to the neck. The shots alerted other cartel members who arrived and opened the mobile home. Harris was later found dead in a bedroom.

His brother-in-law Steven Alexander Stewart was arrested and charged with armed robbery and first-degree murder. Later, authorities found two pounds of cocaine and $ 7,000 in cash in the cache. The trailer was owned by another cartel member, Juan Daniel Salinas Lara, who has an active court order for cocaine trafficking. They say Harris and Stewart had tracked down cartel members before the shooting using electronic devices. The circumstances surrounding Harris’s death stunned his community and authorities.
