San Jose Officer Killed; Shooting Suspect Found Dead Just Hours Later

By    |   Wednesday, 25 Mar 2015 10:27 AM

The suspect who killed a San Jose police officer Tuesday was found dead in his apartment balcony just hours later, The Associated Press reported.

San Jose police spokesman Albert Morales says 57-year-old Scott Dunham killed San Jose police Officer Michael Johnson, a 14-year veteran, on Tuesday night as Johnson was responding to a report of a suicide threat.

Johnson and other officers were met with gunfire as they approached Dunham's San Jose apartment building.

Dunham was found dead at 3:20 a.m. Wednesday on his balcony with at least one gunshot wound. It was unclear if he killed himself or died when officers returned fire.

After Johnson was shot, officers searched the area for the gunman and evacuated nearby homes.

The last San Jose officer killed in the line of duty was Jeffrey Fontana, who was shot during a vehicle stop in 2001.
