DAYTON, Ohio — Police have provided an update on the officer that was shot and critically injured while serving a drug-related warrant at a Dayton home on Monday.
Authorities say detectives knocked and announced themselves as law enforcement officers before entering the house. Police say DelRio was shot in the face twice as Drug Enforcement Administration task force members went into a basement.
Police say he remains on advanced life support and suffered injuries that are "tragically not survivable."
No one else was injured during the shooting.
Det. DelRio will continue to give to the community even after his death as an organ donor. He was a dedicated public servant for 30 years.
