Shaun was a member of the Pomona Police Department. He had 8 years of service with the Department and 16 years in law enforcement.

On October 28, 2014, Shaun was the lead officer of a SWAT team which was attempting to serve a warrant on a member of the Outlaws motorcycle gang.

At about 2:00 a.m, the SWAT team was trying to bust out the storm door of a house in San Gabriel. The subject inside the house fired a single shot from a shotgun. Shaun was shot in the head. He was wearing a Kevlar helmet.  It is speculated that the shot may have been a ricochet.

Shaun was rushed to a hospital but sadly he died of his injuries the next morning.

The subject, David Martinez, age 36, of San Gabriel, was taken into custody at the scene.  He is a motorcycle gang member and has previous convictions for assault with a deadly weapon and domestic violence.
