Michael Johnson - Law Enforcement - San Jose, California

Police Officer Michael Johnson died in the line of duty on March 24, 2015, in San Jose, California. 

Michael Johnson
Officer Johnson was a member of the San Jose Police Department.  He had 14 years of service. 

After 6:30 p.m., Officer Johnson and several other officers responded to a call that Scott Dunham, age 57, was drunk, despondent and was threatening to shoot himself. 

As the officers approached the apartment building where Dunham lived, he stepped out onto the balcony and started shooting.  Michael Johnson was fatally wounded. Officers provided first aid but tragically he died at the scene. 

Officers fired at the shooter and later gained entry into the apartment where he was found dead. It has yet to be determined if he died by his own hand or was killed by a police bullet.

Michael worked patrol and was also a field training officer
Michael, Archangel, Patron
Saint of the Police, pray
for Michael Johnson and
for those who have lost
who worked with recruits. 

The San Jose Police Department is in mourning over the death of their brother. Michael is described as a committed professional who cared about his work. He had bright eyes and a winning smile.  He was full of life. He will be forever remembered.

Michael's loved ones are devastated over his sudden and tragic death. He did his best. He will be forever mourned.

Michael is survived by many loving comrades, friends and family members including his wife.

Thank you for your service, Michael. 

Pray for all who die in the line of duty. 

God save us from the Lost Ones who bring death to strangers. Amen.

Pray that Michael is in heaven. Pray that he is at peace and is with God. Amen.
