The memorial site is located on Miramar Parkway.

The site of the memorial is where Ordonez and Cutshaw, died when police got in a shootout with two armed robbery suspects.

FBI special agents say, the armed suspects engaged law-enforcement, opened fire, there was an exchange of fire between law-enforcement and the suspects, and fortunately, the suspects are now deceased, but two additional innocent civilians were also killed.
