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.

As a 19 year old, Ofc. Fike is the first officer that I remember dying in the line of duty. I never met the man but I know that it left an empty feeling in my heart. Today, it still does when an officer lays his life down for us. In memory of Ofc. Fike, without you this world would have two bad guys still out there. THANK YOU and thanks to the men and women in blue that keep me and my family safe
