Officer Robert Fike was shot and killed by a suspect while standing next to his patrol car. Two citizens found him after the shooting and used his radio to call for help. A suspect, who had committed an armed robbery just before Officer Fike's murder, was arrested seven weeks later and charged with murder and armed robbery.

The suspect was convicted of first degree murder and sentenced to life.

Officer Fike was a former Officer of the Year and had been employed with the Phoenix Police Department for ten years. He is survived by his wife and two young sons.

It's hard to believe that Bob has been gone for 30 years. He was a good officer and a hard worker. He was a credit to his badge and profession. RIP Bob. You are well remembered..
