A police procession to transport a fallen Girard police officer who was shot and killed Saturday took place Monday afternoon.
Thirty-one-year-old Justin Leo was shot and killed while responding to a domestic call. He was dispatched to the 400 block of Indiana Avenue for a domestic situation involving a firearm.
Following a brief discussion between Leo, another responding officer and a male inside the home, the male pulled out a gun and shot Leo.
The second responding officer returned fire, hitting the male.
The male was pronounced dead at the scene and Leo, a five-year veteran of the Girard Police Department, was transported to St. Elizabeth's Medical Center in Youngstown, where her later died.
The incident remains under investigation.
