Agent Julie Cross was shot and killed during a robbery attempt while she and her partner were working undercover monitoring a counterfeit suspect. The two assailants in the shooting were unrelated to the agents' investigation.

Agent Cross' killer was captured 12 years later, convicted of murder, and sentenced to death.

Agent Cross had been in law enforcement for two years, with the San Diego Police Department, prior to being hired by the U.S Secret Service in San Diego. She had just been assigned to the Los Angeles Field Office when the incident occurred near the Los Angeles Airport around 88th St. and Belford Ave.
