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.

It's been 19 years since we lost Lonny. Family and friend.
It seems like yesterday when we got the call about Lonny. It's like knowing exactly where you were when President Kennedy died.
Still in disbelief we remember our precious, sweet, gently cousin Lonny.
My husband can tell you quiet a few antics they pulled together growing up! Dare deviling stunts with their dirt bikes plowing over cliffs to name one of their favorite past times. Lonny and his brother Jay were my husbands closest cousins.
We will always think on these good times and family times.
Cathy, we're sorry we didn't get a chance to get to know you better! We knew you were special because Lonny picked you. I pray the Lord be with you everyday and night to be your comfort. God bless you. You're in our thoughts and prayers.
