Police 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 suffering from gunshot wounds and 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.

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 was survived by his wife, who is also a police officer, and their 3-month-old daughter.

We miss you but are so proud of you and your sacrifices to protect your community! We'll never forget your laugh, smile and sense of humor! You continue keeping the skies safe and we will see you again, one day! You would be so proud of the legacy you have left, including all the encouragement your life has inspired so many with! I know you would want us to remember you with smiles and hope, so that's what we do, no tears (for now) because that wouldn't make you happy. And you deserve to be happy, wherever you are. Godspeed, always, Josh!
