Police Officer David Huerta was shot and killed while arresting a man for violating a restraining order.

Officer Huerta was flagged down by a woman who informed him her husband was at her apartment in violation of the order. When Officer Huerta told the man he had to escort him out of the apartment the man asked to retrieve some belongings from a room. Officer Huerta allowed him to do so and use the phone to call headquarters. The man emerged from the room with a 12-gauge shotgun and killed his wife and Officer Huerta.

The suspect then committed suicide after barricading himself in the apartment.

Dad,
I miss you and sad that I never got to actually bond with you. Granny and Popo told me so many stories about you. They missed you dearly. You have a grandson that is starting to look more and more like you. I know i will see you one day.
Love,
Marcie Lynn
