Lieutenant Cheeks went to a residence to serve an domestic violence related emergency protective order. The Dept had received a call earlier from someone saying that he was the person the order was on and that he was there to receive it.
When Lieutenant Cheeks knocked on the door, someone opened it and immediately shot him.
The person who shot Lieutenant Cheeks was the brother of the person named in the order and is the one who had made the call.
