Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Deputy John Slobojan was assigned to the Temple Sheriff’s Station at the time of his death. Deputy Slobojan was in foot pursuit of a juvenile robbery suspect for several minutes when he was observed stumbling to the ground. When asked by citizens if he needed assistance, he declined, got up and walked a few feet before falling again. At that time his partner caught up with Deputy Slobojan in their patrol car and found him unconscious. His partner attempted to revive Slobojan but he did not respond. An ambulance was called while fellow deputies continued administering CPR. At the hospital, doctors worked on him for fifteen minutes before declaring him dead. Deputy Slobojan was only thirty-years-old. Injuries sustained in an on-duty traffic collision ten months earlier may have contributed to his death.
