A Killeen police officer has died after being shot in the line of duty Friday.

Detective Charles "Chuck" Dinwiddie succumbed to his injuries at Scott & White Hospital in Temple, just after 2 p.m. Sunday afternoon.

Dinwiddie, along with three other officers, were shot while serving a search warrant Friday.

Authorities went to a four-plex apartment in the 1100 block of Circle M Dr. to serve a search warrant. When Dinwiddie and another officer tried to enter the apartment, 50-year-old Marvin Louis Guy and a 49-year-old woman opened fire on authorities, hitting Dinwiddie in the face and Officer Odis Denton in the leg.

Guy is now in the Bell County Jail and faces three attempted capital murder charges.

Police had to evacuate the adjoining apartments before eventually taking the suspects into custody.

The two other officers who were shot at were treated and released, thanks to their protective gear. Officer Denton underwent surgery and remains hospitalized. He is expected to make a full recovery.

One of the suspects who shot several Killeen police officers has been charged with three counts of attempted capital murder. Marvin Louis Guy is being held in the Killeen City Jail on a $3 million bond, $1 million for each count against him.

Two of the officers wounded this morning are still in the hospital, the other two were treated and released.

The shooting happened around 5:30 a.m. Friday, in the 1100 block of Circle M Drive in 
Killeen. A Killeen tactical response unit and a central Texas Organized crime unit came to serve a search warrant. When two officers tried to enter the apartment, a man and a woman opened fire.

Neighbors like Adam Krautheim awoke to the sounds of multiple gunshots going off.

"I came outside and the whole street was just littered with emergency response vehicles, police cars, fire trucks, and ambulances," says Krautheim. "I was only out here about five minutes before I was asked to step back inside, but during that time I saw wounded officers being loaded into the back of the ambulance."

The two injured officers were rushed to Carl R. Darnall Army Medical Center, before they were transported to Scott & White in Temple.
