As the officers ran to his car he was shot in the head when an officer's gun accidentally discharged. He died of his wound the next day.

Investigator Grosso was assigned to the Drug Enforcement Administration's New York Joint Task Force. He had been with the agency for 12 years and was survived by his parents and two brothers.

We dated for just a short time but I remember you had the most beautiful vivid blue eyes. I was very sorry to hear when you passed. Way too young. Not surprised to hear that you weren't married. During our time together all you talked about was a former girlfriend. I couldn't compare to your memories of her. RIP Les. Grateful to have known you. Joan.
