    David Ware Arrested in 2020 OK Slaying of Sgt. Craig Johnson







    Suspect captured after 2 Tulsa police officers shot, critically wounded


    By Ashley Ellis

    UPDATE: Tulsa Police Chief Wendell Franklin asked Monday afternoon for community support as two of his officers fight for their lives shot in the line of duty during an overnight traffic stop.

    Im imploring you, Im asking (you), to pray, Franklin said. And Im also asking for each and every one of you to take steps to support first responders, support your law enforcement, support all of those doing the jobs that you dont want to do.

    The officers who were shot and critically wounded were identified as Sgt. Craig Johnson and Officer Aurash Zarkeshan.

    Johnson has been part of the department since 2005 and was assigned to the Mingo Valley Division as a graveyard supervisor.

    Zarkeshan was a new officer, just completing his training last month.

    He was out on patrol on his own for less than six weeks, the chief said.

    Franklin said the shooting suspect, David Ware, got away with the help of an accomplice, who was found and arrested in Broken Arrow. That man has been identified as 29-year-old Matt Hall.

    This hits home, and it hits home pretty hard for us in law enforcement, the chief said.

    He pleaded for compassion and unity from the community.

    I stand before you today, with two officers that are fighting for their lives. We need this community to come together, Franklin said. Its not just Tulsa. As a nation. Because we wont have what we have without the presence of law enforcement. Law enforcement is ingrained in this culture and has to be.

    UPDATE: An arrest affidavit released by the District Attorney's Office provides new details of the events that led up to the shooting of two Tulsa police officers.

    According to the affidavit, 32-year-old David Ware was pulled over around 3:20 a.m. near 21st and Memorial in a 2007 Chevy Cobalt with expired paper tags.

    The officers' body camera videos reveal Ware argued with police when they told him they would have to tow the vehicle. Ware refused to get out of the car and began arguing with the two officers, saying they were violating his rights.

    The argument with Ware escalated, lasting approximately three minutes before one officer attempted to tase him, but Ware tore out the taser prongs and continued arguing. The officer again attempted to deescalate the situation by using pepper spray on Ware, but he continued to refuse to get out of the car, according to the affidavit.

    Both officers then tried to pull Ware from the vehicle, but he fought them and grabbed a gun from under his seat before firing on the two officers. Ware shot at each officer several times, according to the arrest affidavit.

    After both officers were down, Ware stepped out of the vehicle and stood over one of them and fired three more shots. He then fled the scene and got into a red Jeep SUV.

    The Police Department said one of the officers is unlikely to survive, and the other is "unstable," according to the affidavit.

    Tulsa officer shot during traffic stop has died, police announce

    Mayor quotes Bible to honor fallen officer

    By Nick Givas
    Fox News

    A police officer and father of two from Tulsa, Okla. has succumbed to his wounds after being shot early Monday morning during a routine traffic stop, authorities said.

    The department announced Sgt. Craig Johnsons death on Tuesday afternoon, Fox 25 reported. Johnson is survived by his wife, two young children and his parents.

    He also leaves behind a bunch of brothers and sisters," Tulsa Police Chief Wendell Franklin said, referring to Johnson's fellow officers.

    Officer Aurash Zarkeshan, who was also shot during the incident, had reportedly been out on patrol for less than six weeks. His wounds have not become fatal.

    Police arrested the suspect and identified him as David Anthony Ware, 32. His alleged accomplice, Matt Hall, 29, was also taken into custody.

    I want to thank the Johnson family for sharing Sgt. Craig Johnson with us, for allowing him to be a part of our department, and for allowing him to serve this community, the chief added.

    Tulsa Mayor G.T. Bynum, a Republican, championed Johnson as a hero and quoted scripture to honor his self-sacrifice.

    "In this moment of terrible loss for our city, I cant help but think of John Chapter 15, Verse 13. 'No one has greater love than this, to lay down one's life for one's friend.' Sgt. Craig Johnson lost his life protecting the lives of every Tulsan," Bynum said.

    Republican Gov. Kevin Stitt released a statement following Johnson's passing according to Fox 25 and said, "My heart breaks for the family of Sergeant Craig Johnson and his fellow officers with the Tulsa Police Department. I ask Oklahomans to join the First Lady and me in continuing to pray for his family as well as for his fellow officers.

    "My hope is that Sgt. Johnson is forever remembered for the heroism, courage and bravery he displayed while protecting Tulsa for 15 years," he continued. "We will also continue to pray for a full recovery for Officer Aurash Zarkeshan, who was injured in the same senseless act of violence. Our law enforcement officers need the support of their community now more than ever, and I encourage Oklahomans to find ways to show their support for those who keep them protected.

    Body camera footage showed Ware arguing with the police after he was pulled over for expired paper tags, KTUL reported. Ware refused to exit the vehicle after he was informed that the car would likely be towed.

    The encounter escalated from there before one of the officers tried to tase Ware. He was able to pull out the taser prongs, however, and continued to be belligerent. One of the officers then used pepper spray to subdue him, but Ware remained defiant.

    After the officers tried to forcibly remove him from the car, he retrieved a gun from under his seat and began firing at them. Both men were shot several times, according to the arrest affidavit.

    Ware finally stepped out of the vehicle and fired three more shots as he stood over the wounded policemen.
