He was transported to Grady Memorial Hospital where he died from his injuries.

Officer Johnson's murder remains unsolved.

I had the opportunity of knowing Officer Johnson as a teenager working at the grocery store he was working his security detail. He shared his military career with me on many occasions and was a mentor to me. His guidance led me through a successful 22 year Air Force career and a college education. I will forever be in his debt and remember him always.
