I am posting to inform all members of the law enforcement family that on 6/16/06 Our dept. lost the commander of our narcotics division and the assistant commander of our swat team. Capt Octavio Gonzalez was not only my supervisior but my friend. Capt. Gonzalez had been called at home after one of his narcotics officers had been shot in the leg while attempting to conduct a traffic stop. Shortly after his arrival in the area the subjects were spotted nearby. Capt. Gonzalez was ambushed my the male suspect and was shot three times. The details of his death are still not completly clear at this time. The suspects a male and female were caught later following a stand off that involved hundreds of officers.
