Local Police Heroes Remembered
It has been 4 years since John Felix ambushed, shot and killed 2 Palm Springs Police Officers as they responded to a domestic violence call at a home in the heart of town.
The annual memorial service of Officers Jose Gil Vega and Lesley Zerebny is set for Thursday evening October 8th 2020, but due to the Covid-19 pandemic, is going virtual.
The service begins at 5 in the afternoon, in front of the Palm Springs Police Department headquarters, but is closed to the public.
You can watch the livestream on the Facebook page of the Palm Springs Police Officers’ Association. The memorial service can be viewed at https://www.facebook.com/PSPOA.
Despite repeated arguments by defense attorneys that John Felix was mentally incompetent, an Indio jury did convict Felix of murdering officers Vega and Zerebny. Felix is at San Quentin.
