Master Officer Howard Dallies was shot and killed as he approached a motorcycle he had pulled over in the early morning hours. Without warning, the motorcyle's driver turned and fired six shots at Master Officer Dallies, striking him four times. Officer Dallies died a few hours after being shot.

The suspect was driving a stolen motorcycle with false tags from a similar bike. The suspect was finally arrested in July 1997, but the charges were dropped.

Officer Dallies is survived by his wife and two young sons. Before joining the Garden Grove Police Department, he had served at least 5 years with the Orange County Sheriff's Department and the Placentia Police Department.

Howard was one of those officers that everybody liked and got along with. He was always ready to help you out on a call, or to meet for a cup of coffee and some conversation. He was also highly thought of in the community. I was at work on my full-time job when I heard he had been shot. I promptly left work and went out to work patrol. Sadly the case is still not closed, but ultimately there will be a reckoning for the shooter, either here or in his afterlife Hell. God Bless you Howard, R.I.P. my friend.
