Timeline of shooting: Dayton police detective shot, in critical condition

Here’s a timeline of events when DEA task force officials attempted to serve the warrant:1. The unnamed detective along with other DEA task force members approached a home in the 1400 block of Ruskin Road in Dayton.The only detail known about the officer at this time is that he is male, based on a tweet from the Dayton Police Department last night requesting thoughts for his family.
Just before 7 p.m. Monday, officials said, DelRio was serving a drug-related warrant for the Drug Enforcement Administration at a home on Ruskin Road. Members of a task force run by the DEA suspected people in the home were dealing fentanyl.
Officials with the DEA said DelRio and several other detectives knocked on the door several times, announcing themselves as law enforcement officers. After receiving no response, authorities said they forced entry into the home and descended the basement steps.
That's where DelRio was shot twice in the face, officials said.
Officials said DelRio was an organ donor and "will continue to give of himself to the greater community" now that he has died.
Four people have been arrested in connection with the incident, including 39-year-old Nathan Goddard. Officials said Goddard is believed to be the man who pulled the trigger.
