The day after Christmas a policeman from the Newman Police Department in California stopped a vehicle at a traffic stop. He didn’t know that would be his last day alive.


He was shot and killed in the early hours of Wednesday. Now touching images of him and his family have come out and they revealed how he’d spent the holiday hours before his death.

Corporal Ronil Singh, 33, spent Christmas Day with his family before he began his shift. He didn’t know that it would be his last one alive.

One image showed the family smiling together on the floor of his home in Modesto. In the background, unwrapped presents were seen sitting under their Christmas tree.

A few hours later, the policeman was shot and killed by an illegal immigrant during a DUI traffic stop. A massive manhunt has been launched to find the murderer.


On Twitter, the police released images of the suspect and asked the public for assistance. President Donald Trump picked up on the story and has since used it as more evidence into why a border wall needs to be built between the US and Mexico

He tweeted on Thursday:

“There is right now a full-scale manhunt going on in California for an illegal immigrant accused of shooting and killing a police officer during a traffic stop. Time to get tough on Border Security. Build the Wall!”


Trump also retweeted a 2011 tweet from former President Barack Obama. The quote was from Obama’s State of the Union address and it read:

“I strongly believe that we should take on, once and for all, the issue of illegal immigration.”


At a news conference in Newman Thursday morning, Stanislaus County Sheriff Adam Christianson said he believed the suspect was still in the area. He said, “We will find him, we will arrest him and we will bring him to justice.”

The suspect was described as a heavy-set Hispanic man with close-cropped black hair. Anyone with information was asked to leave an anonymous tip by calling a dedicated line: (209) 525-7202.
