Police Officer Anthony Mosomillo was shot and killed while attempting to arrest a parolee who had missed his court appearance.

He was shot four times after the suspect's girlfriend attacked Officer Mosomillo and his partner. During an intense and violent struggle with both the wanted man and his girlfriend, the subject got possession of Officer Mosomillo's partner's weapon and shot Officer Mosomillo.

The female subject was arrested and convicted of manslaughter. She was released in December 2019 following a 20-year sentence but was re-sentenced to 2 years after a parole violation.

You were a light to this young rookie Tony. I always respected the way you would stop, no matter what you were in the middle of, and give your full attention to us noobs. It was sincere and left a lifelong impression. I try to give people the same full attention. You were never dismissive. It meant a lot. It was and still is heartbreaking to lose you the way we did. The sun has been a little dimmer ever since. Rest in Peace & Love.
