Patty Bird, 52, accompanied her daughter-in-law, Glendale police Sgt. April Arredondo, on the graveyard shift March 25. She looked on as Arredondo fatally shot a man who got off his motorcycle and fired a weapon at the women, according to police. He was suspected of shooting a man outside a Glendale bar minutes earlier.

Bird later said she had ridden with Arredondo in hopes of getting a better understanding of her job.

“I never imagined when I decided to ride with April Friday evening that something like this would happen,” she said.
