BOLO - Kevin Johnson, suspected of killing a Kirkwood, Mo. Sergeant

Sgt. William McEntee
KIRKWOOD, Mo. - For Sgt. William McEntee, it was as routine a call as police get this time of year - someone was shooting fireworks the day after the Fourth of July.

But when the 43-year-old father of three went to investigate around 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, he was ambushed, police said. A gunman, identified by police as 19-year-old Kevin Johnson, shot the officer in the head. He died a few hours later.

"He was responding to a call that had absolutely nothing to do with the shooting," Police Chief Jack Plummer said. "Our man was ambushed."
