CA - Officer Ricardo 'Ricky' Galvez, 29, fatally shot, Downey, 18 Nov 2015
Ricardo "Ricky" Galvez
"DOWNEY, Calif. (KABC) -- Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies are investigating the shooting death of a Downey police officer whose body was found in the west parking lot of the Downey Police Department Wednesday night.
Ricardo "Ricky" Galvez, 29, was found dead at the end of his shift in the 10900 block of Brookshire Avenue shortly after 11 p.m.
Lt. John Corina said at least two suspects walked up to the police officer as he sat in the driver's seat of his own vehicle and opened fire.
A fellow Downey police officer heard the gunshots and chased the suspects to the neighboring city of Montebello, where the suspects bailed on foot near Washington Boulevard and Carob Way."

Downey Officer Ricardo Galvez shot to death in botched robbery; 3 arrested. At a noon press conference, Sheriff’s Homicide Lt. John Corina said the two men and a 17-year-old boy arrested in connection with the shooting did not target Officer Ricardo Galvez because he was a policeman.
“They were out looking to rob someone,” he said. The suspects have not been named yet'

A 16-year-old Bellflower resident was charged Friday with murder in the shooting death of a Downey police officer during a botched robbery earlier this week, prosecutors said. ...
Charged as an adult. Well, poor kid. What was this officer doing wrong? Shot because he was dressed in civilian clothes (required by his job that evening) and not in uniform so these bums could tell that he was LE and would not have tried to rob him? Or not have shot him? Which?
Not much interest in this death, unless negative facts come out about the deceased Officer. Ah, ....

From popsicle's link:
Knott, Alvarez and Diaz will return to court Feb. 5. If convicted, Knott and Alvarez could face the death penalty if prosecutors decide later to seek it. Diaz, because of his age, faces up to life in state prison if he is convicted as charged.

Two men and a teenager accused in the fatal shooting of a police officer in a botched robbery appeared Friday in court, where a judge ruled that television cameras will be allowed at their trials...
Steven Knott, 18, and Jeremy Anthony Alvarez, 21, are charged with capital murder and attempted second-degree robbery in connection with Galvez's death. A 17-year-old suspect, Abel Diaz, will be tried as an adult, but he will not be eligible for the death penalty due to his age...
The three suspects are scheduled to return to court next month to set a date for a preliminary hearing. All pleaded not guilty.
