It is reported that Gibbs signalled a vehicle to stop but the driver disobeyed hitting the cop in the process.

The policeman died on the spot.

The driver fled the scene but later turned in himself to police.

While in custody he was stabbed by an inmate.

The attacker has since been charged with unlawful wounding.
