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.

Daryle...you may be gone from this earth as we know it, but you will never be forgotten. I would have never thought I would never see you again after you were in our home a month before. I will never forget how you let me use your 45 because the 38's at target practice were lousy. I will never forget how you let me use your practice end closed gun to strengthen my hand/trigger finger. We will never forget how you helped Star over the wall. :) Nor will we forget how big your appetite was at the cafe before XTE Competitions. lol.
I hope to see you in Heaven. . .where we will always be safe and sound. May the Lord and His Angels be with your family and friends during this Christmas Season (2014) and always. God Bless You...Gentle Soul.
