Police Officer Shane Figueroa was killed when his patrol car collided with a vehicle driven by a drunk driver.

Officer Figueroa was northbound on 19th Avenue near Roeser Road responding to a shots fired call when a truck turned in front of his patrol car. The impact spun the patrol car and sent it into a block wall. The officer was transported to St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center where he died from his injuries.

The truck driver had four outstanding warrants and was arrested on manslaughter and aggravated assault charges. In June 2009, he was convicted of manslaughter and sentenced to serve 16 years. A passenger in the truck was seriously injured.

Officer Figueroa had served the Phoenix Police Department for more than two years. He is survived by his wife and 3-month-old daughter.

The years of have gone by and your daughter is seven now. I had just a few months solo when day shift was sent to stand by as scene security at 19th ave and Roeser..where you were needlessly taken from us. It was my honor to stand by this horrible scene.

I patrol out of South Mountain Precinct now and go past the area where this criminal took your life. I walk past your plaque in the hallway every day. I go past your locker with your name on it, which will remain locked forever, never to be used again.

Your wife and daughter must miss you so and our hearts go out to them with love. You'll never be forgotten. We miss you brother. Keep a look out for us.
