Authorities said on Tuesday that one of the officers in Tulsa, Oklahoma, who had been killed during a traffic stop, had died.
Sergeant Wendell Franklin said Sergeant. Craig Johnson died .
He said Johnson was shot several times during Monday’s attack, including one that was “critical”.
Franklin described Johnson’s death as a “heavy loss” for the police station.
“His sacrifice will not pass without anyone remembering it,” he said.
A patrol car was covered in the department where officers were with flowers, balloons, American flags and hand-held signs as a tribute.
Johnson and a rookie officer Aurash Zarkeshan were shot around 3:30 am while traffic was interrupted.
The suspected gunman, David Anthony Ware, 32, was arrested after a search that lasted more than seven hours.
The officers were trying to get the ware out of the car, and one of the officers had already deployed a Tazir and Pepper machine gun in an attempt to remove it. Once it came out, Franklin said, Weir pulled out a pistol and fired several rounds.
He said that Zirchan has been on patrol for less than six weeks since he graduated from the Police Academy in the spring.
Franklin said that Johnson joined the Tulsa Police in 2005 and was promoted to Sergeant 2015.
