Richard Mickens, Jr., 58, faces charges of criminal homicide and other offenses. On Sunday morning, police found two people stabbed at an apartment complex of 5th Street.

"It was that event, it was that shooting, that caused Lt. McCallister's death," Chardo said. "And under the law of Pennsylvania, it doesn't matter that it was 1981 that that wound was inflicted."

Chardo said there is a suspect in the case, but did not mention the individual's name during the news conference.

'He suffered tremendously over the years'

On Feb. 19, 1981, then-Sgt. McCallister responded to a bank alarm at the Fulton Bank on North Progress Avenue and Nationwide Drive, Martin said.

When McCallister arrived, he spotted a suspect leaving and chased the person. That's when the running gun battle ensued and McCallister was struck, according to Martin.

Alabama cop killed by wife in domestic incident: police

Alabama cop killed by wife in domestic incident: police Police in a small Alabama city are mourning one of their own, allegedly gunned down by his wife in a domestic dispute. Andrew Wade “Andy” Kimbrel, 42, died early Friday of his wounds. He was a member of the police department in Vestavia Hills, a suburb of Birmingham. Officers responding to a call on Thursday at an apartment block in Gardendale, about 10 miles north of Birmingham, arrived at 10:52 p.m. and “found a 42-year-old white male suffering from a gunshot wound,” according to a statement the Gardendale Police Department posted to Facebook.

McCallister survived, but the injury he suffered followed him the rest of his life, Chardo said.

"He suffered tremendously over the years and in an earlier day, he would have died (but) just because great physicians and other medical personnel were able to keep him alive, does not in any way excuse the person who inflicted that wound," he said.

Martin said he worked with McCallister for 15 years and in that time, witnessed a man who he called "a consummate American Law Enforcement Officer" and a "living symbol of our Constitution and our Republic."
