Dinwiddie was seriously injured after attempting to serve a narcotics search warrant Friday morning.


The Killeen Police Chief Dennis Baldwin has offered his condolences to the family and friends of Detective Dinwiddie.

"Our community has suffered a great loss. Few people have touched the numbers of lives, in such a meaningful way, as Detective Dinwiddie," Chief Baldwin said. "As a dedicated professional, his service to the Killeen community was with honor, courage and unwavering loyalty. Our hearts and prayers go out to his family and friends during this difficult time."

Detective Dinwiddie was an 18-year veteran of the Killeen Police Department. He was also a member of the SWAT Team for 15 of those years.

Killeen Officer Odis Denton was also injured in the shooting and remains at Scott and White Memorial Hospital. He is in the Intensive Care Unit listed in good condition and continues to recover successfully.

(KCEN) -- Killeen Police Detective Charles "Chuck" Dinwiddie died Sunday a little after 2 p.m.

Dinwiddie was one of the Killeen Police officers involved in a multiple officer shooting on Friday.

A flight carrying the U.S. Honor Flag is coming from Fairbanks, AK, to honor Dinwiddie. The flight was honoring two Alaska State Troopers who were killed by gunfire last week.





(KCEN) -- The Killeen Police Department has identified a suspect in a Friday night shooting where four officers were shot and injured.

Killeen PD and the Bell County District Attorney's Office are charging 49 year old Marvin Lewis Guy with three counts of Attempted Capital Murder. 

Guy is in the Killeen City jail on $3 million bond.

A 50 year old female is also in custody but is not currently being identified pending further investigation.

Two of the Killeen officers shot remain at Scott and White, one in good condition and another in critical condition. The other two officers shot had been protected by their safety equipment. They've been treated and released from Scott and White. The names of all of the officers injured aren't being released at this time.

Mayor of Killeen Dan Corbin made a statement Friday concerning the shootings.

"On behalf of the 134,000 residents of Killeen and on behalf of the Council," said Corbin. "I offer condolences to the families of those officers who were shot, and pledge the full support of the community."

Killeen police chief Dennis Baldwin also expressed his condolences, calling the event, "tragic... a senseless, destructive act."

The case continues to be investigated.



UPDATE: May 9, 2014, 5 p.m.

(KCEN) – A Killeen Police officer is in critical condition after a suspect opened fire as police tried to serve a search warrant early Friday morning.

Gunfire broke up the quiet morning, and a total of four officers were shot in the commotion. Two were protected by their body armor.

In a video recorded on her phone, neighbor Angelina Blanks can be heard saying, “Holy [expletive].” That was her first reaction seeing so many flashing lights outside her apartment Friday morning.

“There were a lot of gunshots,” Blanks said, “too many to count."

That's what woke her up.

“I jumped out of bed, I ran to my son's room, grabbed him, put him down on the floor, because it sounded like it came right outside the window here,” she said.

It happened around 5:30 a.m.

A Killeen SWAT team and the Bell County Organized Crime Unit went to 1104 Circle M Drive, right off Fort Hood Street.

They tried to serve a search warrant for general “evidentiary purposes,” Carroll Smith with KPD said.

“Like a loud noise, basically,” Marvin Melton, another neighbor, said. He added he heard someone shout, “’Put the weapons down,’” then “three to four loud shots.”

“It sounded like somebody set off firecrackers, is what it sounded like,” neighbor Mary Parker said.

Police haven't said how many shots were fired or from what kind of weapons.

But when the smoke cleared, two officers lay wounded.

“It's very scary, you know,” Smith said. “It's less than a year after we lost an officer, and we don't want this to happen again."

That first shooting was last July. Officer Bobby Hornsby was killed and another officer injured in a shootout with a suspect.

KPD has yet to identify the two officers injured Friday.

“Violence is everywhere,” said Kelvin Miller, who also lives on the street, “but I'm not used to this right here.”

Hours later the crime scene tape was still up, the roads still blocked off, as investigators from multiple agencies combed through the crime scene.

Even members of the FBI could be seen helping out.

“I just pray for the officers involved that were injured,” Blanks said. “I just hope they're okay.”

The two injured officers remain at Scott and White.

One, an 18-year veteran of the force, is in critical condition. The other, a 9-year veteran is in good condition.

“All of us have heavy hearts because you never want to see this happen,” Smith said later at the hospital, surround by officers from other local departments lending emotional support.

Two suspects, a 49-year-old male and a 50-year-old female, were taken into custody following the shooting. Neither was injured.

Many residents say it could happen anywhere, but some parents say it doesn't make them any more comfortable staying there with their families.

“When I woke up, I came outside and I saw all the police and everything,” said Nicole Krashin, a mother who lives on the street.

“I think it's scary, you know,” she said, “for families and stuff who live around here."

Understandably, the police department and residents here are a little on edge.

A lot of families live on the block and there’s evidence of children – bikes, toys – all over. Friday’s shooting had some parents even thinking about picking up and moving.

“I don't want to be in this kind of environment, you know. I have a child that I'm worried about,” Blanks said.

And for Krashin, it comes down to one thing: “I don't feel safe,” she said. “I don't feel safe for myself or my children."

Even with the two suspects in police custody at the Killeen City Jail.
