    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."

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    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.

    From August:

    Prosecutors say 3 defendants engaged in crime spree prior to killing Downey police officer

    http://www.presstelegram.com/general...police-officer

    Defendants already charged with murdering a Downey police officer Nov. 18 engaged in a crime spree of shooting and robbery prior to the shooting the same night, Los Angeles County prosecutors announced Tuesday.

    New charges stemming from those crimes have been filed, and an attempted murder charge was filed against a fourth defendant, a woman said to be to the girlfriend of one of the men accused with killing Downey Police Officer Ricardo “Ricky” Galvez, 29. That charge stems from a separate crime alleged to have been committed last October at a Montebello convenience store, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office.
    Prosecutors have filed murder charges against Jeremy Anthony Alvarez, 21, of Montebello; Steven Knott, 18, of Montebello and Abel Diaz, 17, of Bellflower. The three have pleaded not guilty to the crimes.

    Alvarez and Knott are eligible for the death penalty, if convicted. Diaz, a minor, faces life in prison.

    The newly-announced fourth defendant, Rebecca Ann Ustrell, 28, of Montebello, herself faces life in prison if convicted of attempted murder.

    Plaque to be unveiled for fallen Downey officer

    http://www.whittierdailynews.com/gov...downey-officer

    It’s been nearly a year since the Downey Police Department lost one of its own in the line of duty, when Officer Ricardo Galvez was gunned down while sitting in his vehicle.

    On Wednesday, officials with the department will honor Galvez with a memorial plaque and dedication in front of the police station. The plaque will eventually be added to the fallen officers memorial.

    Pair ordered to stand trial in death of Downey officer

    http://wavenewspapers.com/pair-order...owney-officer/

    Two reputed gang members were ordered Sept. 27 to stand trial on murder and attempted robbery charges in the killing of a Downey police officer who was shot once in the face while sitting in his BMW in a parking lot near the police station.

    Superior Court Judge Roger Ito rejected requests from defense attorneys to dismiss the case against Steven Knott, 20, and his half-brother, Jeremy Anthony Alvarez, 23, who are charged, along with a third defendant, with the Nov. 18, 2015, slaying of Ricardo Galvez.

    Prosecutors allege that the half-brothers went on a crime spree that fall that culminated with the officer’s murder.
