Posted Nov. 26, 2015 at 1:25 PM Updated at 1:56 PM Former Millis police officer Bryan Johnson, 24, who was indicted last week on charges that he fabricated a story about a gunman and called in a bomb threat to Millis schools in September, was found dead in his Millis home Thursday morning.According to the Norfolk County District Attorney's Office, Massachusetts State Police detectives were called to join Millis Police at Johnson's home at of 6 Walnut Hill Road in Millis around 3:30 a.m. Johnson was found by another resident of the home and was pronounced dead at the scene. No evidence of foul play was found at the scene and the death is not currently being investigated as homicide. An autopsy will be performed by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner.In September, Johnson admitted to firing rounds into his own police cruiser with his own 9mm handgun before telling fellow officers that he had been in a shootout with a gunman. The fabricated story mobilized the town's police force and sent SWAT teams searching for an imaginary perpetrator. Johnson was also accused of calling in bomb threats to Millis schools that kept students locked down for hours. Shortly after the incident, Johnson underwent psychiatric evaluation at Norwood Hospital. Johnson was indicted last week on charges including misleading a criminal investigation, discharging a firearm within 500 feet of a dwelling, making a false police report, willful and malicious destruction of property worth more than $250, wanton destruction of property worth more than $250. Johnson was also charged with willful communication of a bomb threat to a school, a charge that carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in state prison. At his arraignment at Wrentham District Court, Johnson pleaded not guilty.
