One police officer was killed and another was wounded on Friday night by a suspect who barricaded himself in a home in California. Greggory Casillas eventually died from his injuries.
Casillas was pronounced dead at a hospital, while the second officer shot remains in stable condition. Officials didn't identify that officer, but McDonnell said he was shot in the face when he attempted to aid Casillas. "Another hero gone too soon", Los Angeles Police Department Chief Charlie Beck said on Twitter. "His courageous sacrifice will never be forgotten".
Casillas and a second officer pursued the suspect in a vehicle after he allegedly crashed his auto into an apartment complex in Pomona Friday night, according to the Los Angeles Times.
"However, the suspect failed to yield, and a vehicle pursuit ensued".
Isaias De Jesus Valencia, 39, was also charged with attempted murder of other peace officers, the agency said in a statement.
Authorities told reporters the incident began with a police chase near the apartment complex after the suspect was in a auto crash. "He then began firing through the door, striking the two officers". When the officers tried to make contact with him, he opened fire. Authorities said that residents have been evacuated from the apartment building. The incident led to a massive law enforcement response that lasted overnight and well into Saturday as authorities and SWAT officers worked to end the situation.
Casillas was a rookie still in field training.
Casillas first joined the police department in Pomona, which is 30 miles east of Los Angeles, as a records specialist in 2014.
Pomona PD Officer Gregory Casillas was sworn in only six months ago, and was almost finished with field training.
After Casillas' death, colleagues expressed gratitude for the widespread condolences.
Police said they still don't know who the suspect is, but are communicating with him. "Our hearts are heavy as we mourn the loss of our brother". He leaves behind a wife and two young children. He was being held without bail.
