CHULA VISTA, CA — A moving tribute for a fallen Filipino American police officer.
The Eastlake US Postal Service will be renamed after San Diego Police Officer Jonathan “JD” Deguzman.
The post office is located near Deguzman’s home, where he also served in the police department.
The Philippine-born DeGuzman was a police officer, and member of the SWAT team for 16 years.
He was gunned down by a suspected gang member during a routine stop last year.
The suspect, Jesse Gomez — who has had a long criminal history — remains in prison awaiting trial.
