Officer Henry Nava died of a gunshot wound he received two days earlier when he attempted to arrest a man on a warrant.
Officer Nava and two other officers went to the suspect's mobile home to arrest him on a parole violation warrant . The officers were invited inside the residence by a female who resided there. The female gave the officers verbal consent to enter and search for the suspect after stating to them that the suspect was not at the location. As the Officers entered she alerted the suspect by stating loudly "the police are here and are going to search the house." As Officer Nava opened a bedroom door, the suspect emerged with a 9mm handgun and shot Officer Nava in the head, just above the left eye.
After shooting Officer Nava, the suspect fled to a nearby home where he took the female resident hostage for two hours, before releasing her and surrendering to police. He was arrested and charged with capital murder.
Officer Nava was taken to Harris Methodist Fort Worth Hospital where he died two days later from his wound.
Officer Nava had served with the Fort Worth Police Department for 14 years, and had previously served with the Austin Park Police Department for 3 years.
Officer Nava is survived by his parents, wife, daughter, and son.
