Video: Slain cop's touching final act

Officer Jeremy Henwood bought a boy cookies from McDonald’s the last time he was seen alive

By PoliceOne Staff

SAN DIEGO — Police have released a McDonald's security camera video that shows an officer's final good deed shortly before he was fatally shot while sitting inside his patrol car.

Officer Jeremy Henwood was killed in an unprovoked attack just six blocks from the McDonald’s, making it the last place he would have been seen alive, according to NBC San Diego.

In the video, Henwood is seen purchasing cookies for a 13-year-old young man who had approached him and asked him questions about his job — a small but generous act that speaks to the character of the fallen hero.

Local news station CBS 8 interviewed the boy, 13-year-old Daveon Tinsley, about the exchange with Officer Henwood and what it meant to him. That video can be seen in full below.

"It's going to help big because I'm going to think about the guy who lost his life and the family that loved him so, he tells me to work hard, I'm going to work hard," said Tinsley.
