Cpl. Abel Marquez, Cpl. Scott Gardner, and Cpl. Arlie Jones were shot and killed when they responded to a domestic violence call.
When the three officers arrived, the victim left her home and told the officers that her husband had hit her. The officers were unable to gain entry into the home through the front door. They then attempted to gain entry through the back door. As they did, the suspect opened fire, killing Cpl. Jones and Cpl. Gardner, and critically wounding Cpl. Marquez.
