A Chick-fil-A in Lynchburg, Virginia, honored a fallen trooper with a small memorial and touching post.

The restaurant said on Facebook that Trooper Lucas Dowell was a regular customer who served and protected the community.

Dowell was shot and killed Monday night when a tactical team went to serve a search warrant and a resident opened fire.

Police say the resident and subject of that warrant, 44-year-old Corey Johnson, was killed by two other officers on the team.

"Our hearts are saddened at the tragic loss of Trooper Lucas Dowell. Trooper Dowell was a regular patron of ours, serving and protecting our community. We are grieving along with his family, friends, and colleagues. Thank you, Lucas, for giving your all and paying the ultimate price," Chick-fil-A said in the post.
