An Ohio police officer responding to a 911 call was fatally shot in the parking lot of a Home Depot overnight.

Toledo Police Chief George Kral identified the shooting victim as 26-year-old Officer Anthony Dia during a press conference Saturday morning. He told reporters the young cop was dispatched to check on the well-being of a drunk man spotted outside the hardware chain in Toledo late Friday night, WTVG reported.

When Dia arrived on the scene just after midnight Saturday, the suspect had a beer in and hand and was wandering about the parking lot.

“Witnesses tell us the suspect was walking away from the officer, and for some reason, turned and fired a round from a handgun, striking officer Dia in the chest,” Kral said.

“Officer Dia’s fellow officers scooped him up and took him to Toledo Hospital, where he, sadly, succumbed to his injuries.”
