Officer Kerbrat was shot and killed after she and her training officer had stopped to talk to a man who they had recognized as a possible criminal. They stopped the patrol car in front of him and he immediately approached from the rear and opened fire while both officers were still in the patrol car. Officer Kerbrat was killed before exiting the vehicle.

The suspect, who had been thrown out of a bar the previous week and was planning on shooting the employees, was shot and killed by her training officer.

Officer Kerbrat was the first female officer to be killed in the line of duty with the Los Angeles Police Department. She had served with the agency for only 10 months and was survived by her husband, son and daughter.

You are often on my mind after all these years. Look at that smile! I worked with you prior to you becoming a Police Officer, I remember all the exciting steps day by day and you finally passed and your Dream came true. You were taken from all of us way too soon. Im sorry I cldnt attend your funeral as I was 9mo pregnant w/Felicia and my family thought it wld be too emotional for me, and it was after seeing the reports on TV. You were honored by the entire LAPD and Fire Dept frm your husband, but you were honored by the world. God bless your husband and children. I will never forget you, our friendship and your beautiful smile and I know your here with us in Spirit. RIP Tina, I know that beautiful smile is still shining down upon us. God Bless.
