It's not a good idea to repeat the name of a suspect/perp over the radio you just shot. This may be a stretch, but people have scanners, particularly internet scanners. If some violent/criminal family member heard the perp's name, the invovled officer and any other responding officers could encounter retribution. Though in this case, I don't know if that PD allows public radio frequency scanning.

Perhaps they have encrypted radio tech.

Stupid move by the subject. Suicide by cop, perhaps.
