Police Officer Arthur Soo Hoo and Police Officer William Wong were killed when their police car was struck by a vehicle driven at approximately 85 mph.

The occupants in the vehicle were fleeing from a drug deal gone bad. The vehicle ran a red light at the intersection of North Broadway and College Streets and struck the patrol car the officers were in.

Both suspects fled to Mexico where they were arrested by Mexican authorities but released because of the violent drug cartel to which they belonged. In 2003 the vehicle's passenger was arrested in Vacaville, California, and subsequently convicted of manslaughter. The driver remains at large and is believed to still be in Mexico.
