Fatal Incident Summary
Offender: No Info
Location: NY   USA   Fri. Sep. 11, 1987
Summary: Chief Johnson was shot and killed when he was ambushed while responding to a shots fired call on Pillar Point at 1830 hours. A man had just murdered a friend and then went to a nearby intersection and setup an ambush. As Chief Johnson responded to the shots fired call, not knowing a murder had been committed, he slowed at the intersection to turn when the suspect opened fire on him with the shotgun. Chief Johnson's patrol car ran into a guard rail where the man came up and shot him several more times before stealing his radio and service weapon.

After other units failed to reach Chief Johnson on the radio they went to investigate and found where he had been shot. After a high speed pursuit the suspect was shot several times and wounded. He plead guilty on reason of insanity and was committed to a state hospital.

Chief Johnson had been with the agency for 13 years and was survived by his wife and five children.
