A Dover, DE, police corporal died early Friday as the result of medical complications stemming from a leg injury he suffered in the line of duty in 2012. 

Thomas Hannon died surrounded by his family at Christiana Hospital, according to the Police Department. He was 42 years old and had worked in Dover since 2005.   

Gov. John Carney has ordered both U.S. and state flags be flown at half-staff in his memory until further notice. Funeral arrangements have yet to be announced. 

Hannon injured his knee while pursuing a suspect in 2012, Cpl. Mark Hoffman, public information officer for the Dover Police Department, said, and over the years, had several surgeries on it.

Hannon was a highly decorated officer, receiving two lifesaving awards, a 2006 Officer of the Quarter award, two distinguished unit awards, a DUI enforcement award and numerous perfect attendance awards, DelawareOnline reports.
