TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) - The Pima County Medical Examiner’s Office on Thursday, Oct. 7, identified the suspect involved in the Oct. 4 shooting aboard an Amtrak train in downtown Tucson.

DEA Special Agent Mike Garbo was killed in the shooting. Another DEA agent and a Tucson Police Department officer were injured. No train passengers were injured in the incident.

Medical Examiner Dr. Gregory Hess said Darrion Taylor, 26, died as a result of gunshot wounds that were not self-inflicted.
