A man who lost his life while saving others was honored Monday.
Today, he was honored at an annual memorial service for fallen officers.
D. C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier remembered Johns as a smiling man who loved his family.
His gallant act prevented other deaths that day, Lanier said.
James von Brunn was indicted in the shooting but died earlier this year while awaiting trial.
Johns was the only officer to die in the line of duty in the Washington region last year.
