A detective from Ohio died after being shot twice in the face during a raid on a drug cave.
Jorge Del Rio, a 30-year-old veteran of the Dayton police, was killed after he issued an order on Monday at the DEA in a house where the police found fentanyl, cash, and weapons.
The 55-year-old married father got a living, but died on Thursday of his injuries, his department announced.
Nathan Goddard, 39, was arrested and charged with a crime at a cop for firing the shots at Del Rio, but the charges are now expected to be upgraded to murder.
Three other men; Courtney L. Allen, 34; Cahke W. Cortner Sr., 39; and Lionel L. Combs III, 40, were also detained, Fox 19 reported.
They are all faced with lifelong sentences for a whole series of indictments, including conspiracy to own and distribute drugs.
Nineteen pounds of fentanyl were found in a duffle bag and 50 to 60 pounds of marijuana were found on the floor, federal officials said.
Officers also found $ 11,000 in cash distributed along a coffee table, $ 40,000 in a duffle bag on the stairs and two pistols.
& # 39; We are deeply saddened to announce the death of Det. Jorge Del Rio who today succumbed to a duty injury, & tweeted Dayton police.
& # 39; Earlier today at Grandview Hospital, Det. Del Rio has acted to save lives through the generous gift of organ donation. & # 39;
According to Fox 19, Del Rio and his colleagues met the group of men when they arrived at the house.
He was shot when no one responded to shocks inside and he stormed the basement while others & # 39; DEA & # 39; and & # 39; Search Warrant & # 39; cried.
Del Rio was able to fire his shots, but was hit while walking down the basement stairs.
Officers put him in a cruiser and took him to the nearby Grandview Medical Center.
