Officer Johnny Castro is a forensic artist with the Philadelphia Police Department. He creates portraits of officers killed in the line of duty across the country.

Castro says he has painted almost every officer who died in the line of duty this year, including Fayetteville, Arkansas, Officer Stephen Carr who was also killed Saturday.

Carr is from Houston and his father was a Houston police sergeant.

The portraits are given to the officer's family.
