Officer Joshua Miktarian was shot and killed while conducting a traffic stop on Glenwood Drive at approximately 2:00 am.

Approximately two minutes after making the initial stop he radioed for assistance. Dispatchers then received several 911 calls reporting gunshots. Responding officers located Officer Miktarian. He was flown to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The suspect was arrested a short time later by members of the Bedford Heights Police Department. He was convicted of all charges in May 2010 and sentenced to death in June 2010 and is now on Ohio's death row. The death penalty is now being appealed.

Officer Miktarian had served with the Twinsburg Police Department for 11 years and also served as a part-time officer with the Uniontown Police Department. He is survived by his wife, who is also a police officer, and their 3-month-old daughter.
