VIDEO: Suspected Motorcycle Gang Member Charged with Killing California SWAT Officer

A 36-year-old suspected Mongols motorcycle gang member was charged Thursday with capital murder in connection with the fatal shooting of a Pomona SWAT officer.

David Martinez of San Gabriel appeared in court in downtown Los Angeles Thursday, when his arraignment was postponed to Nov. 13, KTLA reports. He is accused of killing Officer Shaun Diamond, a 19-year law enforcement veteran.

Martinez allegedly fired on Diamond as the officer entered a home in San Gabriel about 4 a.m. Tuesday. Diamond, 45, died at a Pasadena hospital Wednesday.

R.I.P. Officer Diamond. May the department, family, & community be blessed at this time.
Possibly a, No knock warrant? If so they are the scariest to be involved in especially at the front end. It don't help when your dealing with M.C.G's. notorious for wanting to kill. Stay safe out there Men/Women on duty.

So where's Holder and Obama on this act of violence?

God bless Officer Diamond and his family. And the Mongol, this POS doesn't desrve to make it to trial.

I hope this p.o.s. gets what he deserves. My thoughts and prayers go out to Officer Diamond, his family, and his agency.
