Two men have been arrested for the murder of Chicago police officer John Rivera, who was ambushed and gunned down hours after finishing his shift this weekend, authorities said Monday.

One of the suspects, accused shooter 24-year-old Menelik Jackson, was an applicant to be an officer for the Chicago Police Department, Chicago Police Department spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told ABC News.

Jackson, of South Holland, Illinois, was arrested during a polygraph test for a background check for committing an armed home invasion. A judge subsequently put him on probation, Guglielmi said.

Jackson and his accused co-conspirator, Jovan Battle, 32, of Chicago, will each face one felony count of first-degree murder and three felony counts of attempted murder, Guglielmi said on Twitter. Jackson also faces charges of resisting police after trying to flee during arrest, he said.
