Officer Daryle Black was shot and killed when he and his partner were ambushed.

The two officers, members of the Long Beach Police Department's anti-gang unit, were driving an unmarked vehicle at approximately 2300 hours when they were struck by gunfire in an ambush style attack. After both officers were shot, one officer was able to call for assistance, and both were taken to a local hospital where Officer Black died approximately one hour later. Neither officer was able to return fire.

The suspect was arrested two days later after being identified through an investigation. The killer was found guilty and sentenced to death during his second trial.

Officer Black had been employed with the Long Beach Police Department for six years, and had been in law enforcement for ten years. He had previously served with the United States Marine Corps.
