----------------------------NEWS STORY (NBC SAND DIEGO)-------------------------------
Just moments before he was fatally wounded in an unprovoked attack, a San Diego police officer performed one last act of kindness; he bought a child food while buying his own dinner.

Jeremy Henwood, 36, stopped at the McDonald's in the 3800-block of Fairmount Avenue at 5:24 p.m. on Aug. 6. Surveillance video released Tuesday shows Henwood speaking with the boy and getting their food shortly before leaving the store at 5:27 p.m.

Shortly after 5:30 p.m., Henwood was shot while sitting inside his patrol car at the corner of University Avenue and 45th Street. Henwood had only made it six blocks from the McDonalds; it would be the last place he was seen alive.

Witnesses said a man pulled up on this side of Henwood's vehicle and shot him with a shotgun in what officials say was an unprovoked attack.

Henwood passed away at Scripps Mercy Hospital at 1:42 a.m. on Aug. 7.

Henwood, who served with SDPD for four years, was assigned to the Mid-City Division. He was also a Captain in the United States Marine Corps Reserves and had recently returned from deployment. During a memorial service in Point Loma on Aug. 12, Henwood was promoted to the rank of major.

The suspect in Henwood's shooting, whom police have identified as Dejon Marquee White, 23, was killed by police after a standoff outside a City Heights apartment building almost an hour after Henwood was shot.
