TAMPA, Fla. — Several hours before he was shot to death while on patrol, Tampa Police Department Cpl. Mike Roberts had accepted a job as a detective that would have taken him off patrol duty.

Roberts, an 11-year veteran of the force, was going to be a detective on the department's hit-and-run squad. The move would have taken him off the night shift and off patrol duty.
