Troy police said gas station security video showed Josey and Dombrowski confront each other in the parking lot. That's when police said Josey pulled a gun and shot Dombrowski three times in the stomach. Josey then got back into the Jeep when drove off on Wattles.

Early the next morning, Troy Police said Josey and the woman arrived at the Troy Police Department and turned themselves in.

Police said a 9mm handgun used in the shooting was recovered.

Dombrowski was a 29-year veteran of the force and worked at Engine 53 on the city's west side. He had been awarded a Medal of Valor in 2018 for heroism when he crawled through smoke and flames to rescue an unconscious man from a house fire.
