Officer Mario Navidad was shot and killed after he and his partner were flagged down by a convenience store clerk who told them a man had just stolen a 12-pack of beer. The two officers spotted the man in an alley and as they approached him he pulled out a gun and shot at them while they were still in their patrol car, striking Officer Navidad.

His partner was able to return fire and kill the suspect.
