IN THE LINE OF DUTY

 

John "Big John" Davis was a twelve year veteran with the Phoenix Police Department when he responded to a call of an armed robbery with Detective Ignacio Conchos in July 1, 1982.  Detective Davis and Detective Conchos were searching for the robbery suspect and entered a bar that was nearby the crime scene.  They contacted the bartender and gave him a description of the armed robbery suspect and asked the bartender if he had seen the suspect.  After the bartender pointed out a man that had recently entered the bar, the suspect, ambushed the detectives, mortally wounding Detective Conchos.  Detective Davis was shot, but was able to return gunfire and fatally wounded the suspect.  Detective Davis was rushed to the hospital with very serious injuries.  He succumbed to his injuries one month later, on August 2, 1982.
