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.

Officer Navidad had served with the agency for 1 year. He is survived by his wife and two children.

I was sworn in as an LAPD police officer 19 years ago today, the day after your murder. Our academy class kept your name and your family close to our hearts. Your sacrifice will always be remembered. Rest easy my brother - we'll continue on in your memory.

Love and respect to the Navidad family.
