Officer Gonzales was shot and killed after being flagged down by two women who reported a struggle between a man and their friend. As Officer Gonzales approached the man and woman in an alley the man opened fire with a .38 caliber handgun, striking Officer Gonzales. Officer Gonzales had been wearing a vest earlier during his shift but had removed it because of the heat.

Officer Gonzales had been with the agency for four years and was survived by his wife and stepdaughter.

Eloy and your family, I'm writing a memoir of my police service as a helicopter pilot in San Antonio, Texas, where I flew the funeral procession - several miles long - that honored you. It was my privilege to work in your Six Section for a year, begining about six months after your death. Be assured that your fellow officers thought about you then and haven't forgotten you to this day. The love they had for you was obvious. Rest in peace.
