The murderer was a 20-year-old gang member in 2004 when he killed 53-year-old LA County OPS Captain MICHAEL SPARKES, who was on a bike ride. Despite taking rounds from an AK-47, Sparkes managed to shoot Miguel Magallon and call 911 after the thug and his accomplice drove back to the scene of the shooting to fire on Sparkes again. Captain Sparkes was a PPOA member and 30-year department veteran. He was survived by his wife, adult stepdaughter and a 7-year-old son.
