He was identified as 25 year-old Roger Mills and also a suspect in a home invasion robbery in the West Valley Area that occurred on June 6, 2004.

SIS detectives followed Mills as he picked up his girlfriend, identified as 19 year-old Tracy Hernandez and a friend, 22 year-old Maxim Kushnir. SIS detectives observed the three suspects commit a residential burglary in West Valley Area. SIS detectives followed the suspects, as they were northbound on Woodman Avenue approaching Oxnard Street. The detectives stopped their vehicle near the intersection of Woodman Avenue and Oxnard Street. After the suspects exited their vehicle, an officer involved shooting occurred. Detective James Harris, 55 years of age and 31 years with the Department, fired one round from his Department issued 12-gauge shotgun, striking Mills on his left side.
