An Illinois state trooper died Friday from wounds he suffered hours earlier while executing a search warrant.

Illinois State Police SWAT team member Nicholas Hopkins, 33, was shot at around 5:30 a.m. during an exchange of gunfire while he and other troopers were serving the warrant at a home in East St. Louis.

The article goes on to state the following:

Hopkins was taken to St. Louis University Hospital, where he was pronounced dead due to “catastrophic injuries” at approximately 6:10 p.m., Illinois State Police Acting Director Brendan Kelly told reporters.

After the shooting, police surrounded the home and arrested three people. Police remained on the scene throughout the day, uncertain if another suspect was barricaded in the house, according to authorities. The three people arrested were not identified and authorities have not revealed the basis for the search warrant.

The report states that Hopkins had been on the force for 10 years. He has three sisters and two brothers, one of whom is a police officer in another state. He leaves behind a wife and three children.
