Officer Ramon Irizarry succumbed to gunshot wounds received one week earlier.

Officer Irizarry was shot in the head at close range as he, and several other officers, served a search warrant on the occupants of a house in West Oakland suspected of being the center of drug trafficking and fencing of stolen goods.

The suspect was wounded in the face when three officers fired at him as he fled from the shooting scene. He was apprehended and charged with murder with special circumstances and was sentenced to life.

Officer Irizarry had been with the agency for two years.

I met Ramon in early 1982 while I was employed as a clerk at USA gas station on Pittsburgh Ca. On his way home from work he would stop by the gas station to check on me to ensure I was ok. He did this out of the kindness of his heart. He was an awesome human being. I miss my friend !
