Deputy Sheriff Hagop Jake Kuredjian was shot and killed after responding to backup another deputy and federal agents who were attempting to serve a warrant on a man for impersonating a police officer and possessing a firearm as a convicted felon.

When officers arrived at the residence in an affluent neighborhood, the man came to the door several times but refused to go outside. As the officers attempted to gain entry through a window the man opened fire with an automatic rifle, striking Deputy Kuredjian in the head.

The suspect then held other officers at bay for several hours before his house caught fire and burned to the ground. The suspect had previously been a police officer.

Deputy Kuredjian had served with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department for 17 years.

Hey Jake- Lee and Cam and I think of you often - always with laughter, the Beach Team was more fun because you were on it - La Salsa tacos for breakfast before we hit the beach, and the In-N-Out truck at the station during the fires -

Can't ride in the Bu without thinking of you, your smile and hugs. Miss you my LASD brother - always -but especially today.

Yesterday a Deputy from Sacramento joined your team up there - Robert French - he was taken the same way you were - welcome him... and Keep Watch over us.
