Officer Johnson was shot and killed as she and her partner served commitment papers.

Officer Johnson and her partner were assigned to serve commitment papers on a male whose family said he was in need of psychiatric evaluation. When the officers arrived, the male confronted them with a gun. The suspect opened fire on the officers, and struck Officer Johnson. After Officer Johnson fell, the suspect stood over her and fired several more shots.

Officer Johnson's partner called for backup and responding officers exchanged gunfire with the suspect, eventually killing him.

Officer Johnson had served with the New Orleans Police Department for three years.
