"Patrolman Tiffany and Patrolman Ronald Ebeltoft were shot and killed after responding to a dispute between two neighbors over the placement of a rose bush. During the dispute one of the men assaulted the other. As both officers were standing outside of the suspect’s home the man snuck up behind them and opened fire with an assault rifle, killing both officers." ~ San Diego Police Historical Association
My husband had introduced his sister to Keith, they fell in love and were married just a short time after meeting each other . . . they had only been married for six months when Keith was taken.
It was a very sad day as we lost both Keith and his partner Ronald R. Ebeltoft. Keith and Ron are buried right next to each other.
