Police Officer Harold Hammons was accidentally shot and killed by a fellow officer while serving a search warrant. Two officers had cleared the main room and detained several armed subjects as Officer Hammons was clearing the kitchen.
One of the officers in the main room saw a motion in the kitchen and, mistakenly believing a suspect was in the kitchen, opened fire with a shotgun.
Officer Hammons had served with the Dallas Police Department for two years. He was survived by his mother, brother, and four sisters.
