Deputy Louis Wallace was shot and killed after he and his partner made a stop of a suspicious person. As they were patting the suspect down over the hood of their cruiser the man suddenly produced a .32 caliber handgun from the crotch-area of his pants and opened fire, striking Deputy Wallace, and his partner in the knee.

Despite being mortally wounded, Deputy Wallace was able to return fire and kill the suspect. He told responding deputies to transport his wounded partner to the hospital first. Deputy Wallace died while en route to the hospital.

Lou was my training officer when I was transferred to Firestone Sta. He was one of the most intelligent Deputies I knew. He could sense a bad guy a block away. I was working the night he was murdered and rolled on the call. When I arrived he was down and so was the perp. I rolled to the hosp and was there when he sat up and said " i'm glad I killed that SOB." Those were his last words. I'll never forget him. Great Dep and great friend. God bless you Lou. You are in a better place and deserve to be there. His partner Al was also a great friend and Dep. Miss you guys.
