"Fairbanks lost a hero today," Johnson said, with Fairbanks city Mayor Jim Matherly standing somberly next to him. "I'm sorry to have to let you know that earlier this afternoon, Sgt. Allen Brandt lost the fight. He had surgery yesterday and suffered complications afterward which continued to deteriorate throughout the day and from which he was unable to recover.

"Our community, this department, our family and our friends are hurting. We thank you for all the support you have given us so far, and we ask you for more, for his family, for your department and for yourselves. Let's help each other heal and work through this together."
