While waiting in undercover vehicles for a fugitive suspect, Las Vegas police detectives with the repeat offender program heard a call on the radio for a robbery alarm. They saw a car drive past them and park that they thought might be linked to the robbery. A detective drove to the parked car and shined a flashlight on the license plate to record it. Later, the driver of the Honda pulled up to the undercover vehicle and confronted him. The detective didn’t respond. Later, a pickup truck drove by the detective’s vehicle, which was still parked in the neighborhood. A man, later identified as Phillip Michael Ramos, stood up out of the cab and fired several times at him. The officer returned fire, killing him.
