Dayton Police Detective Jorge DelRio remains in grave condition; however, his injuries are “not survivable,” according to Dayton Police Chief Richard Biehl.
“After a life of dedicated public service, Jorge will continue to give of himself to the greater community by being an organ donor upon his death,” Biehl said in an updated media release Wednesday afternoon, the Dayton Daily News reports.
DelRio was shot Monday night while executing a drug-related search warrant at a Dayton residence. He was serving with a DEA task force.
Nathan S. Goddard Jr., 39, is accused of firing the shots that mortally wounded DelRio, according to police and federal investigators.
Police seized 9 kilograms of fentanyl, up to 60 pounds of marijuana, $51,000 cash from the house, WHIO TV reports.
Four men are being held in the case. Three, including Goddard Jr., are facing federal drug charges. Goddard will likely be charged with murder.
Dayton police say they will announce when Detective DelRio passes.
