Officer Jimmie Chadwell was shot and killed as he and three other officers attempted to serve a warrant on a suspect. Officer Chadwell and another officer entered the front of the home as the other two officers entered the rear of the home.

The suspect was located hiding in a shower in the bathroom. As Officer Chadwell entered the room the suspect opened fire, striking him in the face. The other officers immediately returned fire, killing the suspect. One of the officer's shots also struck Officer Chadwell in the back. The coroner ruled that either shot from the officer or the friendly-fire round would have been fatal.

Officer Chadwell had served with the agency for 12 years. He was survived by his wife and three children.
