Deputy Maria Rosa was shot and killed by two robbery suspects after they identified her as a deputy during the incident.

Deputy Rosa was leaving a friend's home to report for duty when two juveniles approached her on bicycles and attempted to rob her. As they took items from her they discovered her gun and badge and immediately opened fire, fatally wounding her.

Both suspects were apprehended and charged with her murder. On May 8, 2008, the suspect who shot Deputy Rosa was convicted of first degree murder and sentenced to death.
