Cincinnati.com reported:

Sonny Kim, a 27-year veteran with the Cincinnati Police Department was shot and killed Friday morning during a shootout in Madisonville, leaving the department in mourning and a neighborhood on edge.

Kim, 48, had immigrated to the United States from South Korea in 1973. He was a well-respected officer who had earned 22 commendations in his career.

“CPD lost one of its best today,” Chief Jeffrey Blackwell said during a somber afternoon news conference. “We lost a brother, but right now my heart is broken more for his three sons, who lost a father, and his wife, who lost a husband.”

Another family, too, is in mourning: Blackwell confirmed that the suspect in the shooting is also dead.

Shootings are up 28% in Cincinnati this year over last year.
