Senior Corporal Norman Smith was shot and killed as he attempted to serve an arrest warrant.

Corporal Smith and several members of the Gang Unit went to a home on Wadsworth Drive in Dallas to service an arrest warrant for aggravated assault. When Corporal Smith knocked on the front door of the home, he was shot and killed.

Members of the Dallas Police SWAT team were able to make entry into the apartment and arrest three suspects, including the suspected shooter. The shooter was convicted and sentenced to life in prison.

Corporal Smith had served with the Dallas Police Department for 18 years and was assigned to the Gang Unit; he had previously served with the United States Marine Corps. His murder occurred on the day before this 18th anniversary with the department.

Just watched an episode of the First 48 Hours and as it ended they had dedicated the episode in memory of you. I was curious to know why so i Googled your name and sadly found out that you were killed in the line of duty by some piece of garbage. As a former Marine myself I pray for you and your family. This unfortunate nightmare keeps occurring all of the time all over our country but you will never be forgotten for your service.
