They are Melvyn F. English, Todd G. Edwards, Christopher M. Grivas, Matthew J. Cook and Truong T. Thai.
The officers have been with Metro ranging from six to 20 years.
Police received a call reporting a stolen car with a gun inside and tracked the car to a parking lot near Jones and Smoke Ranch.

The woman was later identified by the coroner's office as 49-year-old Sharmel T. Edwards.
