Wounded Dayton (OH) Police Department Detective Jorge DelRio was taken into surgery to donate his organs Thursday morning and died afterward, according to a statement made by Chief Richard Biehl.

Hundreds of officers gathered at Grandview Hospital to honor the detective Thursday morning, Biehl said. Funeral arrangements will be announced next week, reports the Cincinnati Enquirer.

"We have not even begun to adjust to a professional or personal life that does not include Jorge's presence," Biehl said. "That is even truer for his family, friends, loved ones who were blessed to know Jorge and to benefit from his warm and generous spirit."

DelRio was shot Monday night during a search warrant execution. He remained on advanced life support until Thursday morning, the department said. He suffered injuries during the shooting that the chief said were "tragically not survivable."
