Medlock sent a final message from a squad car. He announced his retirement earlier this year.

"I have completed my final assignment... and I am ending my tour of duty with the Fayetteville Police Department," he said in the video. "God bless the men and women of the Fayetteville Police Department. I pray your protection in His grace. You're all my heroes."

After that, the dispatcher and other officers gave their well-wishes and thanked him.

Anthony Kelly is taking over as interim police chief.
