BRENTWOOD, N.H. (AP) - The Brentwood police officer killed a year ago when he walked into an ambush will be honored at ceremonies in Washington, D.C.

Stephen Arkell responded to a domestic dispute call on May 12, 2014, and was shot to death as he entered the home. The gunman, 47-year-old Michael Nolan, fired at another officer then set the house ablaze before killing himself.

During National Police Week events in Washington, Arkell’s name will be formally added to the National Law Enforcement Memorial. There is also a candlelight vigil on Wednesday night.

On Thursday night in Washington, the New Hampshire Police Association will host an event dedicated to Arkell.

Arkell’s name is also etched on the state Law Enforcement Memorial in Concord, the 46th to be added to the monument for fallen officers.
