Officer Troy Barboza was shot and killed by a drug suspect he had previously arrested.

Officer Barboza was an undercover officer and had the suspect arrested after making a cocaine purchase from him. After the suspect was released from jail, he found where Officer Barboza lived, went to his home, and shot him with a shotgun as he sat in his living room chair.

The suspect fled to San Diego, California, but with the help of mainland undercover officers, returned to Hawaii under the premise of making another drug deal. He was convicted and sentenced to life without parole.

I saw On ID today, July 3, 2014 that you were from Clayton, CA. I was about your age and lived in El Cerrito, Ca. You looked like you could have been my brother. Your contribution to special athletics truly touched my heart. I pray that your family will always know how much you were honored, respected and loved. May God always look over your family. God Bless.
