Deputy Brewer was shot and killed by a suspect who was barricaded in his home after firing shots into his neighborhood. Deputy Brewer, who was a member of the SWAT team, was shot in the arm in-between the panels of his vest with an AK-47.

The SWAT team was attempting to break down the front door when shots were fired by the suspect. The suspect was later shot and killed by SWAT team members. He ran out of the house shooting due to a fire started by tear gas canisters. When the suspect exited the home, he was wearing a gas mask, and camouflage clothing.

Deputy Brewer is survived by his wife, who was also a member of the San Diego County Sheriff's Department.
