How ironic would this be if it were one of the individuals that the Wichita immigration department did not "have time" for ?!!!

As soon as he shot the guy, he was GONE. Guessing that if Sanchez is latino, the suspect was also, and he might have been trying to get to Mexico. Probally patroled I-35 for him. When was the last murder in Baldwin?
