Offender: Shot and killed
Officer McCormack was shot and killed by an emotionally disturbed suspect who had barricaded himself in a house after he was not allowed to see his young son.

As they attempted to talk the suspect out of the house, the suspect exited through the rear door and fired the shotgun. The shot struck Officer McCormack in an area under his armpit that was not protected by his vest. Other officers returned fire, killing the suspect.
Officer McCormack had served with the agency for 15 years and was assigned to the Emergency Service Unit. He was survived by his wife and three children.
