TUCSON, Ariz. (KGUN) — Speakers at Friday's funeral of slain DEA agent Michael Garbo identified the DEA agent who was injured in the deadly Monday Amtrak shootout.

A Tucson Police Department speaker said DEA agent Steve Fox was injured in the shooting. A DEA spokeswoman later confirmed Fox's identity to KGUN9.

TPD would not identify their officer who was also injured in the shooting.

The TPD speaker said Fox joined the ceremony remotely.

"Steve we know you can hear us. We know you wish you can be here, but we can feel your presence here with us today," the speaker said.

The day of the shooting, Fox was in critical condition and the TPD officer was said to be stable.

The Pima County Medical Examiner confirmed that 26-year-old Darrion Taylor — the alleged shooter — was shot and killed in the incident.
