The officers had just kicked out several people following a fight inside the club. As one of the patrons was taken outside, he pulled out a handgun and shot two of the officers, fatally wounding Officer James. The other officers on the scene returned fire and apprehended the shooter.
The killer was sentenced to death in October 2002. He was executed by lethal injection on October 14, 2015.
Officer James had been employed with the Dallas Police Department for six years. He is survived by his wife and daughter.
