    Farmers Branch police officer Lowell Clayton "L.C." Tribble was on his way back to work about 1 a.m. in August 1983, after dropping off flu medicine at home for his ailing 2-year-old son.

    Within moments, someone gunned down the 38-year-old officer inside his patrol car, and police struggled to capture his killer for nearly three decades.


    Gary Wayne Pettigrew Friday, 27 years to the day of Tribble's death, Farmers Branch police and Dallas County prosecutors announced the arrest and indictment of Gary Wayne Pettigrew in what had been the oldest unsolved cop killing in the state.

    He said that Pettigrew, 63, who has already been indicted on a capital murder charge, was arrested Friday morning.

    State District Judge Robert Burns set his bail at $5 million.
