"The world needs hope and goodness right now," Carlton Palmore Elementary School Principal Badonna Dardis told Fox News in an email.

The Columbian reported that Brown – a 15 year veteran of the sheriff's office – was shot in his vehicle late Friday while conducting surveillance at a Vancouver apartment complex. He died later at a hospital, authorities said.

Vancouver Police said other units in the area were unable to reach the sheriff's detective on the radio at the time of the shooting. A resident reported hearing what sounded like gunshots and saw a man bleeding inside a vehicle.


A woman and two men fled the scene and were pursued by law enforcement. Their vehicle later crashed and the three occupants fled on foot, police said.

The other suspects, Abran Raya Leon, 28, and Misty Raya, 35, were arrested on unrelated felony warrants after a manhunt.

Witnesses told investigators that Guillermo Raya was paranoid that police were following him and he confronted Brown who sat in an unmarked SUV, according to an arrest warrant affidavit obtained by The Columbian.

Raya will be extradited to Clark County to face charges related to Friday's shooting, police said.
