An officer with 18 years of experience who committed suicide the day after being involved in the fatal shooting of a homicide suspect is mourned by the Dallas Police Department.

What Happened?

Dallas Police Chief Eddie Garca referred to Officer Matthew Bacon’s passing as “a heartbreaking loss for our DPD family” in memos distributed to the entire department following his death. The chief further exhorted his subordinates to “never hesitate to reach out.”

As part of the U.S. Marshals fugitive task group, Bacon served Corey Thomas, 36, an arrest warrant on South Taylor Street on August 7. Police said Thomas was wanted for a murder that happened on July 24 in Dallas.

According to the agency, that day at the apartment complex, Bacon and a number of other officers discovered Thomas inside a pickup truck.

According to law enforcement, task force members approached the truck and made an effort to obstruct his departure with their vehicles. Thomas tried to exit the truck through the obstructed passenger side door while he was in the driver’s seat.

According to the preliminary inquiry, Thomas pointed his revolver at the arresting cops. The department claims that four officers, including Bacon, then opened fire, hitting Thomas. Later the morning at the hospital, he passed away.

Over the course of his career, Bacon won more than 80 awards and contributed to the creation of a database that makes it easier to spot repeat offenders. His coworkers claim that after beginning in 2005, his police career ended this week after putting his life at danger to make the city safer.
