RIP, Officer Timothy Warren

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A Memphis officer who was fatally shot in a hotel last week had posted a YouTube video in March that captured his thoughts on the occasional conflict between his religious faith and the demands of police work.

Timothy Warren bypassed roll call Sunday night and rushed to respond to a "shots fired" call at a Memphis hotel, where a gunman shot him in the head in a stairwell.

In the video, images of police, nature, and religion flash across the screen, and Warren narrates, questioning when to give lawbreakers second chances and when to focus on enforcement.

"I pray both paths can merge without yielding," he says.

Warren, who studied philosophy, was analytical, professional, and outspoken about his beliefs, his friends and family told the Commercial Appeal.

"He loved his job," said his best friend, Jerome Gray. "He told me: 'I'd give my life for my fellow officers.' And that's what he did."
