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.

I was Howards first wife. We met while working at the Placentia Police Department. I loved him dearly. During our marriage, we had a son Jonathan. Unfortunately, Jonathan passed away at 30 days old. Such a tragic time for us. When I heard that Howard had passed, I was shocked and full of sadness. I felt so bad for Howard and his family. But, I do know that Howard is with his son Jonathan and that gives me comfort. I'm sure that our Jonathan was there to welcome his father. I can picture Howard in a large rocking chair, holding and rocking our Jonathan to sleep. Two awesome angels in Heaven! Miss you Howard.
