Edward Jagst joined the suburabn force in 2000.

Edward Jagst, a 21-year veteran of Canton Police Department, was allegedly shot and killed in his Brighton home by his 18-year-old son Monday morning. 

The officer's daughter called police and said her brother had killed her dad and was about to kill himself, WXYZ reports. Police arrived around 10:30 a.m. and found Jagst, 48, fatally wounded.

The son had left, so police called him. He agreed to pull over about three miles away and was arrested.  

“Officer Jagst was a remarkable man who was strong in his faith, and was a truly loving husband and father,” Chief Chad Baugh said in a release. “He was a shining example of love and service, and our Canton Police family, past and present, consider ourselves fortunate to have known him. Our hearts go out to the Jagst family at this time of tragedy."
