Police Officer Irma Lozada was shot and killed while attempting to arrest a robbery suspect.

She and her partner were in plainclothes patrolling the L Line when they witnessed a suspect snatch a piece of jewelry. The officers gave chase but were split up. Officer Lozada's body was found three hours later in a parking lot. She had been shot in the head with her own weapon while attempting to make an arrest. The 19 year-old suspect was later apprehended, convicted of second degree murder, and sentenced to 32 1/2 years to life in prison.

Officer Lozada was the first female officer to be killed in the line of duty in New York City. She was assigned to Transit District 33 and had served with the New York City Transit Police Department for four years. She is survived by her mother and brother.
