PITTSBURGH (AP) — Two Wal-Mart workers who disarmed and subdued a suspect after the fatal shooting of an Austin police officer are among 22 people honored with medals and cash awards from the Carnegie Hero Fund Commission.

Five of those honored Wednesday died in the process so their families will receive the awards.

Wal-Mart employees Lincoln LeMere and Archie Jordy were honored less than a month after the man they subdued, Brandon Daniel, was sentenced to death for killing Officer Jaime Padron on April 6, 2012, in Austin.

Also honored with a Carnegie award:

–Michael Jerome Cade of Enid, Okla., rescued a woman from being assaulted by an armed man, who shot Cade in the process, while Henry McHenry of Houston rescued Cade from the armed suspect in Houston, in May 2013.
