Fatal Incident Summary
Offender: No Info
Location: LA   USA   Tue. Mar. 05, 2002
Summary: Patrolman Hector Gomez was shot and killed after responding to a bank where three suspects, one juvenile and two adults, were attempting to cash a check.

Bank officials became suspicious of the transaction and called police. When Patrolman Gomez arrived, the suspects fled and he gave chase. Their vehicle crashed into a ditch and as Patrolman Gomez approached the suspects, he was shot and killed. All three suspects were later apprehended a short time later.

In August 2003, the shooter pled guilty to murder and was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole. The other two were charged with manslaughter.

Patrolman Gomez had been a member of the three-person department for just under one year and was the only officer on duty at the time. He was a U.S. Army veteran and is survived by his expectant wife, child, mother, and four brothers.
