The Navajo Nation Police Officer Houston James Largo, who was just 27-year-old, was rushed to the hospital by his fellow officers. His situation was so critical, and there is no presence of a prominent hospital nearby, so he was airlifted, and taken to the University of New Mexico Hospital in Albuquerque, where he was pronounced dead by the doctors.

According to the police authorities, the suspect was arrested just after the incident, and he is now in the custody of the police. The FBI have been involved in the matter as the Navajo Nation is situated in multiple states, so the federal police came for investigation, and along with the tribal people, because of the area falls under semi-autonomous region.

This incident is the second such in a single day, another one happen in the state of Ohio, but the police office is alive as well the suspect.
