San Diego, California - Just moments before he was fatally wounded in an unprovoked attack, a San Diego police officer performed one last act of kindness; he bought a child food while buying his own dinner.
Jeremy Henwood, 36, stopped at the McDonald’s in the 3800-block of Fairmount Avenue at 5:24 p.m. on Aug. 6. Surveillance video released Tuesday shows Henwood speaking with the boy and getting their food shortly before leaving the store at 5:27 p.m.
Shortly after 5:30 p.m., Henwood was shot while sitting inside his patrol car at the corner of University Avenue and 45th Street. Henwood had only made it six blocks from the McDonalds; it would be the last place he was seen alive.
Witnesses said a man pulled up on this side of Henwood’s vehicle and shot him with a shotgun in what officials say was an unprovoked attack.
The suspect Dejon Marquee, 23, was pursued and killed by police officers after he allegedly reached for his gun.
