The two officers were taken to LA County-USC Medical Center, where one was declared dead. "It's extremely tragic", Corina said. Authorities have not released many other details, and it was not immediately clear what prompted the shooting.
The case had stumped authorities for more than a decade. Before Duke's arrest, GBI interviewed more than 200 people without finding a single person of interest.
A massive manhunt was launched after Grinstead's disappearance, but the case proved hard due to the lack of evidence found in Grinstead's home, according to the GBI.
The GBI spokesman also declined to comment on other aspects of the case, such as Duke's motive, how Grinstead died and whether others were involved.
Grinstead's remains were never found.
