A petty criminal drove alongside the patrol car of San Diego police Officer Jeremy Henwood and opened fire, blasting him in the head, in what the police chief has called an assassination. Sunday, the 36-year-old died. Henwood grew up in Texas, attended the University of Texas, then joined the Marines and served in some of the most dangerous areas of Afghanistan. In May, he returned to his job with the San Diego police department. In a final act of heroism, his parents gave the OK for the hospital to harvest Henwood's organs for transplant, the Los Angeles Times reports. His funeral is expected to be Friday.
