Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Deputy Robert Magee was assigned to the Wilshire area of Los Angeles when he was murdered. Former police officer Robert Magee, 34 years of age, was visiting old comrades at the Wilshire Station when a call came out regarding a burglary in progress. Adrenaline pumping, he volunteered to help Detectives Brown and Luke apprehend the suspects. Now considered a Special Deputy, Magee entered the dwelling and was ascending the stairs when he was shot. A female burglar was soon discovered outside with both ankles broken from her jump off the balcony. She implicated her new husband as the shooter but the grand jury was not convinced, holding both suspects and another female accessory to answer the charges.
