MIDLAND, Texas -- A Midland police officer was shot and killed Tuesday morning when he was mistaken for an intruder while responding to a burglar alarm.
Officer Nathan Heidelberg, 28, was a five-year veteran of the Midland Police Department in West Texas. He died around 8:30 a.m. at a local hospital, CBS 7 reported.
“Nathan treated others with respect, regardless of their demeanor or actions,” Police Chief Seth Herman said on Facebook. “He was a tireless public servant who devoted every ounce of energy to this profession, the citizens and his fellow officers. We have lost not only a great officer, but a loving brother and the most positive example of what we should all aspire to be.”
