    TOLEDO, Ohio (WTVG) - Toledo Police Chief George Kral gave a detailed account on Monday of the Fourth of July incident at the Home Depot on Alexis that ended with one of his officer's shot and killed.
    Kral started the presentation by calling 26-year-old Officer Anthony Dia a hero. He was the 31st Toledo Police Officer to die in the line of duty.

    He released the 911 call, in which a woman called in about a heavily intoxicated male in a silver Mercury sedan. The older white male had several beer cans on top of the vehicle, which wasn't starting in the middle of the Home Depot parking lot.

    Officer Dia arrived at the scene at 12:11 a.m. After encountering 57-year-old Edward Henry, he lost sight of him behind a flower display. Kral said the suspect then fired once, hitting Dia close to the armpit.

    Kral said the body camera footage from Dia's person would not be released, but his final radio transmission was shared at the afternoon press conference.

    "118, tell my family I love them."

    Dia was pronounced dead at the hospital.

    Dia's father left the room when that recording was played, but made comments to the press beforehand.

    "My son went to help this man. I don’t know if my son was walking on eggshells because of everything that’s been done. I just told him, 'do your job, come home to your family.' Unfortunately, he didn’t come home to family," Tony "Younes" Dia said. "All this anti-police stuff... his death - it's God telling us, 'Whoa. Calm down."

    When asked what he would say to his son, Dia replied, "I love him and I'm proud of him. I'm proud he died defending the city."

    Maybe the second worse thing about this tragedy is that there are some people celebrating.
