Corporal Keith Heacook was declared “clinically dead” Wednesday at 12:48 p.m. at a Baltimore hospital, Delmar Police Chief Ivan Barkley said.

A 911 caller reported a man, later identified as Randon Wilkerson, 30, was being disorderly, fighting with other residents inside the house and destroying items inside the home. Moments later, a separate 911 call was made by a neighbor of the original caller across the street claiming he and his wife had been attacked by a man who was no longer in the house.

Cause of Death

Delmar Police Department’s Corporal Keith Heacook, the officer injured in a vicious attack early Sunday, has been declared clinically deceased by health officials in Baltimore. Cpl. Heacook, a 22 year veteran, was one of the three victims involved in a brutal attack in Delmar on Sunday. Police say he was severely beaten by 30-year-old Randon Wilkerson, while responding to a domestic incident. Cpl. Heacook was taken to Shock Trauma in Baltimore with significant head injuries.

Wednesday night, black banners were hung over the Delmar Police Department and the cruiser of Cpl. Heacook before a press conference. Delaware Attorney General Kathleen Jennings upgraded charges. Wilkerson is now facing the possibility of going away for murder. “He will be held accountable for his heinous crimes against Coporal Heacook, against the elderly couple he viciously attacked, and against Delmar and our entire state,” said Attorney General Jennings.

Delmar Police Chief Ivan Barkley also shared that as Cpl. Heacook remained on life support, his family made the decision to bring hope to others with the corporal’s ultimate sacrifice. “I need you to know that even with his sacrifice, he’s still a hero for someone. His family have graciously decided to donate his organs,” said Chief Barkley.

Wednesday afternoon’s news summed up by Chief Barkley into nine words. “Our community, my department, his family – we all mourn,” said Chief Barkley.

Chief Barkley says no funeral arrangements have been made for Cpl. Heacook yet. The chief says those details will be announced in the coming days. Meanwhile, Delaware State Police says the elderly couple who were also victims in the attack are back home and resting.

Investigation Report

When Heacook arrived at the home, he was confronted by Wilkerson, investigators said.

The dispatcher on the line with Heacook tried checking on him but received no response. Additional officers, including a state trooper and a Wicomico County Sheriff’s Office deputy, were dispatched and found Heacook unconscious inside the home, according to officials.

They rendered first aid, and Heacook was rushed to TidalHealth in Salisbury before being transferred to R. Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore with “significant” head injuries.

As police investigated, they found an elderly couple who had also been assaulted across the street. Investigators said their attack was related to the first, and the couple was rushed to area hospitals, with one also transferred to R. Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center.

Wilkerson allegedly knocked on the back door of the couple’s home and was met by the 73-year-old male victim. Wilkerson then attacked the man, striking him numerous times with a glass object, investigators said. Wilkerson then repeatedly attacked a 76-year-old woman with the same object before fleeing the house, according to officials.

Both victims suffered significant injuries and were taken to area hospitals. The elderly woman was later taken to Shock Trauma in Baltimore.

Police said they spotted Wilkerson walking on the back of the property where the first 911 call was made. He was taken into custody without incident and charged with attempted murder, assault, possession of a deadly weapon during the commission of a felony, burglary, assault and terroristic threatening.

Wilkerson was arraigned and committed to Sussex Correctional Institution on $451,000 cash bond.

Wilkerson’s charges will be upgraded to include murder, according to Jennings.

“He will be held accountable for his heinous crimes against Cpl. Heacook, against the elderly couple he viciously assaulted, and against Delmar and our state,” Jennings wrote. “The DOJ has been working together with Delmar and Delaware State Police, and all are doing everything in our power to ensure a successful prosecution.”
