Officer Blaize Madrid-Evans was shot and killed when he was dispatched to the 2300 block of South Northern Boulevard to check for a wanted subject at a residence at about 11:30 am.
As officers encountered the wanted subject the man opened fire and critically wounded Officer Madrid-Evans. Other officers on the scene returned fire and killed the subject.
Officer Madrid-Evans was transported to a local hospital where he succumbed to his wounds later that evening.
