I was a young HPD officer when the call went out over the police radio on a HPD cruiser driving into a house in Bellaire ,Texas. Life flight landed where Officer Gaddis was transported to Hermann Hospital. I still remember the loud crying screams echoing throughout the hospital hallways when Officer Gaddi's mother was told of her son's death. I will never forgot this sad day 24 years later.

I still tell the young officers today in the training program as FTS and when i trained/evaluated rookies about Officer Gaddis line of duty death. R.I.P SIR
