A man threatening to commit suicide unleashed a barrage of gunfire on San Jose officers who were called to check on him, killing a 14-year veteran in what the mayor is calling the city's "darkest hour."

On Wednesday, police escorted the body of fallen Officer Michael Johnson from the medical examiner's office to a funeral home in Los Gatos.
