Police Officer Tyler Stewart was shot and killed while investigating a domestic violence incident at an apartment complex in the 800 block of West Clay Avenue at approximately 1:30 pm.

He had made contact with the subject and met him at an apartment where he had been staying. During the conversation Officer Stewart asked the man if he could pat him down for weapons. The subject suddenly pulled out a handgun from his pocket and immediately opened fire, striking Officer Stewart. He then continued to fire after Officer Stewart fell to the ground.

Despite being wounded, Officer Stewart was able to activate an emergency alert button, but did not answer radio calls. Responding officers discovered him suffering from the gunshot wound and he was transported to a local hospital where he later died.

The subject who shot Officer Stewart committed suicide nearby after walking from the scene.

Officer Stewart had served with the Flagstaff Police Department for less than one year. He is survived by his parents, his girlfriend, three step-sisters, and three step-brothers. His father and grandfather are officers with the Arizona Department of Public Safety and his uncle is an officer with the Phoenix Police Department.

Ofc. Stewart,
I never met you but I wish I could have had the pleasure. I heard the story of your last call the other day while in the hallways and I wish it could have been different. So many of your brothers still talk about you every day and remember you. I often wonder if you know your photo hangs in our hallways as a reminder of your bravery. I wonder if you know on the anniversary of your last call they set a memorial in the hallway. On that day, each officer stops at that table and touches it, remembering your heroism. Our lost brother in blue, I hope you know how loved you are by those who met you and those who never had the pleasure to. Rest in peace Tyler. You will never be forgotten.
