Corporal Richard Barreda was killed when his police motorcycle slid under an illegally parked shuttle bus that was pulling into traffic. Corporal Barreda layed down his motorcycle in an attempt to avoid a collision, but slid underneath the vehicle.

He was flown to a nearby hospital where he succumbed to his injuries approximately one hour later. The driver of the shuttle bus was acquitted of charges stemming from the accident.

Corporal Barreda had served with the agency for four years. He is survived by his wife, daughter, parents and siblings.

The agency's new indoor range was named in honor of Corporal Barreda's service to the airport community.
