Patrolman Donald Knott and Patrolman William Isham were shot and killed after responding to a domestic disturbance call on Quincy Avenue. A man, who was beating his common law wife, opened fire on the officers when they entered his apartment. Both officers managed to return fire hitting the suspect eight times. Both officers were shot in the chest and pronounced dead upon arrival to Long Beach Community Hospital. The suspect died seven weeks later at Los Angeles General Hospital.

Your POA helped the families of the 43 law enforcement officers whose killers were on death row in 2012 by helping our families preserve the death penalty.

You are remembered today. I pray for the solace of all those that love and remember you for I know both the pain and pride are forever.
