Authorities report that the suspect accused of fatally shooting an Euclid police officer on Saturday night near Cleveland has been confirmed dead.

According to reports, the Euclid police officer identified as Jacob Derbin, 23, was ambushed and killed during a disturbance call to a residence.

According to the police, officers were dispatched on Saturday night to a home after a reported disturbance. The complainant had told the police that her child’s father threatened to harm her and her mother. When the police arrived, the woman said the suspect was on foot and nearby.

The officers then went to check the backyard, and they were ambushed by gunfire. It was this time the gunman ambushed Derbin, striking him with gunfire. The officers returned the fire, and the suspect fled the scene.

Durbin was later taken to a hospital but was unable to recover from his injuries. The suspect was later identified as Deshawn Anthony Vaughn, 24. After this incident, multiple law enforcement agencies assisted the Euclid Police Department in locating Vaughn, but to no avail.

On Saturday evening, it was reported that the search for Vaughn was over, as he had been found dead inside a residence in Shaker Heights. Authorities confirmed that Vaughn was heavily armed, and it is not yet clear how he was killed.

Euclid Police Chief Scott Meyer described Derbin as an incredible person and said that the police department was devastated by his demise. According to Meyer, Derbin was a military veteran with the police department for less than a year.

Durbin was engaged and set to be married in July, and his father is also an Euclid police officer.

“He was an amazing human being,” Meyer said. “Just a great heart, and had an incredible smile. The world is a better place with him in it.”

Prominent figures in Ohio react to the death of Derbin sending in their condolences. Euclid Mayor Kirsten Holzheimer Gail shared her condolences with the Derbin family and encouraged the community to unite in solidarity.

‘This moment calls for us, as a community, to come together in solidarity and support, not only to honor a hero who selflessly served and protected us but also to offer strength to one another in this time of grief,” Holzheimer Gail said.

Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost expressed deep sadness and shared his condolences in a news release.

“It is a cruel irony that a mother lost her son on Mother’s Day and that this murder happened just as we prepare to solemnize our fallen during Police Memorial Week,” Yost said.
