VIDEO: Calif. SWAT Officer Shot in Anti-Gang Operation Dies

Pomona (Calif.) PD Officer Shaun Diamond, 45, was pronounced dead overnight at a Pasadena hospital where he was admitted Tuesday in "extremely critical condition" after being shot during a motorcycle gang investigation Tuesday morning at a San Gabriel residence. Authorities announced early Wednesday that the 16-year veteran of law enforcement, who leaves behind a wife and two children, had died.

Police officers, deputies and other law enforcement personnel were outside the hospital Wednesday morning as Diamond's body was placed in a coroner's van. The procession continued on Huntington Drive, where other law enforcement and firefighting personnel stood in salute to honor a man whose mother described him as trustworthy, capable and caring.

Alleged shooter David Martinez, 36, was arrested and being held in lieu of $4 million bail. Martinez has an extensive criminal history and is expected to be arraigned Thursday.
