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.

Just thinking of you today as many of our classmates have retired from service. You have come up in a lot of conversations while I have been training a new class of dispatchers -- all good things. Especially, recalling how I had to tell all the University of Hawaii classmates that the bouncer form Moose's Pucks Alley is in my recruit class. Love and miss you very much. Alofa tele, Lani
