Johnson used his police radio to call "shots fired," but then lost control of his vehicle and crashed into a wooded area about two blocks north of where he was shot.
The medical examiner later determined Johnson died from a gunshot wound to the chest.
Salt Lake County District Attorneys Sim Gill has said Johnson was wearing a bulletproof vest, but the bullet struck in an area the vest did not cover.
Walker — who shot himself in the face that day — was hospitalized for his injuries before being booked into the Salt Lake County jail, where he remains in lieu of $2 million cash-only bail.
Vaillancourt, who also was treated at a hospital, is being held at the jail on $500,000 cash-only bail.
Both defendants are scheduled to appear again before Kouris on Dec. 3 for a status hearing.
