Services have been announced for a Dayton detective who died after being shot at a house while serving a drug-related warrant.

Authorities say Dayton officer Jorge Del Rio was shot in the face Nov. 4 while working with a Drug Enforcement Administration taskforce.

Authorities say detectives announced themselves as law enforcement officers before entering the house and Del Rio was shot entering a basement. Del Rio died Thursday. No one else was injured.
