(Victor Valley)– District Attorney Mike Ramos awarded the Medal of Valor to Senior Investigator Tom Boyles for his actions following the Dec. 2 terrorist attack at the Inland Regional Center.
“This is the first time in the history of the District Attorney’s office that an investigator has been awarded the Medal of Valor,” said Ramos. When Tom located the pursuing officer, the suspects stopped their vehicle and began firing automatic weapons at Tom and the responding officers. Tom alighted from his vehicle, advanced on the suspects and returned fire, along with others. The two suspects ceased firing. They were dead.
In addition to awarding the Medal of Valor, Ramos recognized 27 other members of the office for their actions on Dec. 2.
