"He Died Heroically in the Line of Duty..."

The Galilee Institute stands in salute of Officer Stephen Tyrone Johns who has died after being shot by a white supremacist at the Holocaust Museum in Washington, DC.

In an e-mail, museum director Sara Bloomfield said that Johns "died heroically in the line of duty" and pointed out that "a couple of thousand people were inside the facility when the shooting broke out," just before 1 p.m. ET.

"It was Johns' quick response along with his fellow officers that saved the lives of those inside."
