PHOENIX — The Federal Bureau of Investigation has identified the suspect accused of murdering a Tohono O’odham police officer last week in southern Arizona.
Carlos Maximilliano Galvan, 39, was taken into custody Thursday for the murder of Bryan Brown, FBI officials said Monday in a press release.
Tribal police said officers were responding to reports of a public disturbance by an armed and erratic driver around 9 a.m. near a casino about 120 miles west of Tucson.
During the apprehension, police said Brown suffered a serious injury and was airlifted to a hospital in Phoenix where he was pronounced dead.
Police said Galvan attempted to flee the scene but was arrested by tribal police with help from U.S. Border Patrol agents.
How Brown died wasn’t immediately available.
Gov. Doug Ducey ordered all flags at state buildings to be lowered to half-staff Friday in honor of Brown.
The Tohono O’odham reservation stretches from near Tucson to the edge of Why.
