It is with heavy hearts that we report that the Show Low police officer, Darrin Reed has passed away from his injuries during a shoot out with suspect 36 year old Daniel Erickson. Officer Darren passed away last night in the hospital.
Erickson soon barricaded himself in a cabin with a hostage who is 15 years old. Multiple agencies responded to the location of the cabin including SWAT teams, and DPS members. During the over 6 hour long standoff, Erickson fired several rounds at Law Enforcement officers when they eventually returned fire, killing Erickson. Fortunately the hostage was safe after the shootout with Erickson and Law Enforcement.
