Officer Chadwick was shot and killed while responding to a noise complaint at an apartment complex in the early morning hours. The suspect was a mentally ill man, known as the "Birdman," who was shoveling birdseed to hundreds of birds, causing a lot of noise. As Officer Chadwick approached the suspect the man suddenly turned and shot at him with two 9 mm handguns in ambush attack. The suspect was later shot and killed by a police sniper.

Officer Chadwick was survived by his wife and son.

RIP my friend & brother. You have paid the ultimate sacrifice and you will never be forgotten for your heroism, loyalty, dedication, and sense of duty. It's been 20 years and it seems like yesterday that we were working side by side, serving and protecting the citizens of Great Falls. You were taken from all of us much to early in your career and life. Know that while you were with us you made a difference and since you have been gone you have saved many lives, including mine...... Thank you.
