Shortly after arriving, officers told the suspect to drop the gun, causing the suspect to run inside his home and begin shooting at the officers striking 15-year veteran Detective Jerry Walker. After being transported to Denton Regional Medical Center, Detective Walker succumbed to his gun-wound received in the line of duty.
