DETAIL OF INCIDENCE:
CBS reported that McIntire started as a patrol officer and rose the ranks to become the chief of Brackenridge Police.
A Brackenridge police officer was shot and killed, and another officer was wounded Monday, police said. The suspect was shot and killed by police later in the night, and police sources told CBS Pittsburgh.
Allegheny County Police Superintendent Christopher Kearns said Monday night that police encountered a wanted suspect, identified as 28-year-old Aaron Lamont Swan, and engaged in a foot chase that lasted several hours. There were two shooting incidents several blocks apart.
In one, Kearns said an officer was shot in the head and killed. The deceased officer has not been publicly identified, but sources identified him to CBS Pittsburgh as Brackenridge police chief Justin McIntire, who had been chief since 2018.
Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro tweeted, “Police Chief Justin McIntire ran towards danger to keep Pennsylvanians safe — and he made the ultimate sacrifice in service to the community.”
Another officer was then shot in the leg in the second incident. Kearns said that officer was transported to a hospital and was in stable condition.
The suspect was wounded but was able to flee after carjacking a vehicle, according to police. Swan was then shot and killed in another shootout with police a little before 7 p.m. local time in the Homewood neighborhood of Pittsburgh, according to CBS Pittsburgh.
The people to whom the carjacked vehicle belonged were not harmed, police said.
Swan was initially wanted for an alleged weapons violation of his probation, and police had encountered him Sunday night, but he was able to evade them following a chase.
Brackenridge is located in Alleghany County, a few miles northeast of Pittsburgh.
