It pains to inform you that one of America’s Finest from the San Diego Police Department, Officer Jonathan “JD” De Guzman was shot and killed yesterday evening in the line of duty. His partner, Office Wade Irwin, was also shot severely, but is expected to recover.

In moments like this, it is important that we stand together and offer our care and support for our fallen officers and the everyday heroes that make up our law enforcement. Funeral services will be coordinated and details will be provided by the San Diego Police Department.
