Officer Victor Estefan was shot and killed after making a traffic stop. As he approached the vehicle to get the driver's information he was shot and killed. The suspects, who were brothers, were arrested in California after a shootout with the California Highway Patrol during a nation-wide manhunt.

Both suspects were convicted of first degree murder and sentenced to death. In 1997 the Florida Supreme Court overturned their convictions stating they had not received a fair trial. In March 2013, a jury declared a mistrial for the alleged gunman, and the suspect is still being held awaiting another trial. The brothers are serving life sentences for trying to kill highway patrol troopers in Southern California.

Officer Estefan was survived by his wife, son, daughter, and grandson.

MY GRANDFATHER Victor Estefan risked his life in the line of duty for everyone. But who really suffers the pain of his lost MY FAMiLY,MY GRANDMOTHER Delia Estefan, MY FATHER Angel Estefan sr Everyone in my family including me even though I never met him but it hurts not to know who your grandfather was and how his voice sounded and how great of grandfather he was to my brother Angel Estefan jr. .How good of person he was the sayings he would say the lessons he would teach you for your own good and future. I feel the pain strong cause seeing my grandmother till this day suffer and cry for his lost its very hard. Everyone that left there comments thank you alot because as I was reading your comments putting the pieces together to figure out how good of person he was when he was alive .23 Jesus answered him, “If anyone loves me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him. 24 Whoever does not love me does not keep my words. And the word that you hear is not mine but the Father's who sent me.

25 “These things I have spoken to you while I am still with you. 26 But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you. 27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. 28 You heard me say to you, ‘I am going away, and I will come to you.’ If you loved me, you would have rejoiced, because I am going to the Father, for the Father is greater than I. 29 And now I have told you before it takes place, so that when it does take place you may believe. 30 I will no longer talk much with you, for the ruler of this world is coming. He has no claim on me, 31 but I do as the Father has commanded me, so that the world may know that I love the Father. Rise, let us go from here. John 14:23-15:17
