A Killeen, Texas, police officer who was wounded during a Friday morning shooting at an apartment has died.

Chief Dennis Baldwin told the Killeen Daily Herald, "Our community has suffered a great loss. Few people have touched the number of lives, in such a meaningful way, as Detective Dinwiddie," He went on to say, "As a dedicated professional, his service to the Killeen community was with honor, courage and unwavering loyalty."
Dinwiddle was shot while serving a search warrant on Friday.

My prayers are with the Dinwiddie Family and the Killeen Police Department. Earth has no sorrow that Heaven cannot heal. Rest in peace.
