Well that didn’t take long: Edward Esposito has been named as the undercover Newark sherriff’s officer who fatally shot Atlanta’s married father DeFarra Gaymon (pictured) on July 16 when the businessman allegedly was cruising a park for sex.

Esposito’s bullet entered Gaymon’s stomach when, Esposito claimed in a statement to investigators, Gaymon shoved him to the ground and threatened to kill him after Esposito flashed his badge. Gaymon was pronounced dead three hours later at a hospital.

He was buried on Saturday. His obituary does not mention cause of death.
