He is survived by a fiancee as well as a mother, father, and brother.

Meanwhile, a police dog — who was shot in the head in pursuit of the gunman — lost an eye, but is expected to make a full recovery after undergoing major surgery. Indi, a 7-year-old K9 officer, has been with the police department for five years.
