Sergeant Wilson was accidentally shot and killed inside the station house when another officer dropped a .45 caliber pistol, which discharged. The round entered Sergeant Wilson's leg and traveled into his abdomen. His leg had to be amputated and he succumbed to his wounds several hours later.
Sergeant Wilson had been with the agency for four years. His wife gave birth to their sixth child the following day.

What a great man Officer Wilson was. Obviously I couldn't have known him but have a remarkable respect for him. I know without a doubt that it was devastating for his expectant wife who gave birth the next day. A tragic accident occurred I'm sure the officer that dropped the 45 was also devastated. May God have given both families peace and strength to have endured through this long ago accident.
