DAYTON, Ohio— Police say a detective was on life support after being shot and critically injured at a house in Ohio while serving a drug-related warrant.

Dayton police Chief Richard Biehl said Tuesday that Jorge DelRio was shot twice in the face Monday while working with a Drug Enforcement Administration task force.

Authorities say detectives knocked and announced themselves as law enforcement officers before entering the house. Police say DelRio was shot as task force members went into a basement.

No one else was injured.

Federal authorities say one man has been charged with assaulting an officer with a deadly weapon and two other men are charged with conspiring to distribute drugs including fentanyl.
