The FBI informed the police department about its investigation Oct. 14, and Shevchenko was arrested that night while on duty, Mata said.

This incident is unfortunate, and I am extremely disappointed that an employee in our organization may have harbored and spread these hateful messages,” Mata told reporters.

During a search of Shevchenko’s home, investigators seized multiple firearms and other items, Mata said. Shevchenko faces charges of possession of a concealed firearm, possession of an assault weapon and possession of a concealed dirk or dagger.
