Friends and family described Bachmann as compassionate, humble and selfless.

Authorities say Bachmann was fatally shot Monday by Thomas Alton Caffall III. The 41-year-old constable was trying to serve Caffall with a court summons for being behind on rent.

Other officers fatally shot Caffall. His family members have said he suffered from an unspecified mental illness.

A bystander checking some property was also killed. Three police officers and a female bystander were wounded.
