Officer Emilio Miyares was shot and killed after he and his partner responded to a shoplifting call.

The officers asked the two suspects for identification and were given false names. Both suspects then fled the scene and were chased by the officers. A struggle ensued and one assailant gained control of Officer Miyares' weapon and shot him with it.

The killer died in prison in 1994.

It's now 27 plus years when I met and spoke to Officer Miyares for the first and last time on his last day on earth as I called him to the attention of what was then two suspicious youths in the Dollar discount store. May Almighty God continue to comfort his beloved family as well as keep him a place of honour in heaven ... 'what greater gift than a man giving his life for his country in the line of duty!' I shall keep him in my prayers.
