Detective Sergeant Roy Shambleau was shot and killed while he and another officer transported to armed robbery suspects to jail.

One of the men pulled out a .32 caliber handgun he had concealed in the small of his back and shot Sergeant Shambleau in the head three times. He then struggled with the other detective and shot him in the hand. The suspects were both apprehended by a detective following in another car and both sentenced to life at hard labor.

Sergeant Shambleau had been with the agency for four years and was survived by his wife and three children.
