Deputy David E. Andrews, a graduate of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Academy class #151, was murdered in a Los Angeles area gas station restroom while off-duty. At the time of his death, Deputy Andrews was assigned to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Firestone Station, in south-central Los Angeles and was engaged to be married.
Although Deputy Andrews was killed off-duty, there is little doubt that the killers knew he was a Deputy Sheriff. They killed him with his own revolver and took his Department identification. The case was investigated by the Los Angeles Police Department and the killer arrested. The suspect has since been released from prison.
