Sister of fallen officer speaks about her "superhero"

KILLEEN - The sister of fallen Killeen officer Chuck Dinwiddie says her brother died doing what he love, protecting and serving.

Ellen Dinwiddie-Smith says her brother was a kind man, and his death has been really hard on her family. Even though he was an 18-year-old veteran of KPD, the family never thought their "Superman" would go so soon.

"I suppose we knew that it might happen. Everyday we know there are men who lay down their lives for us, but he was our superhero so we didn't expect it," said Dinwiddie-Smith.

Hundreds of friends, family and fellow law enforcement officers will attend Dinwiddies' memorial service. A viewing will be held Friday night from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the First Baptist Church in Killeen. His funeral service will be at 10 a.m. Saturday at the Killeen Civic and Conference Center.

Dinwiddie died Sunday, May 11, from gunshot wounds he suffered while serving a narcotics search warrant the morning of May 9. Three other officers were shot, including Officer Odis Denton, but they are recovering.

Funds have been established for both the Dinwiddie family and Denton family. You can go to the following links to make a donation to the families online:
