delke hambrick

Officer Andrew Delke (L) is charged with criminal homicide in the death of Daniel Hambrick.

The Nashville Fraternal Order of Police released a video on Thursday as part of its digital campaign designed to show the public the truth about Metro Police Officer Andrew Delke and what the organization believes are politically-motivated and false charges brought against him by District Attorney Glenn Funk.

Delke was charged with first degree murder in connection with the shooting death of Daniel Hambrick.

The first of several videos, which can be seen at, opens with an actual photo of the loaded semiautomatic handgun that Daniel Hambrick was carrying in his hand as led Delke on a foot chase through a residential neighborhood.

“Officer Delke confronted a convicted felon who was carrying a loaded semiautomatic weapon,” said James Smallwood, President of the Nashville FOP in a news release. “In similar situations, police officers around the country have been shot by suspects as they were running away. This video shows precisely the danger that Officer Delke faced.”

The video is available on YouTube and the Truth About Delke website.

The FOP is paying to advertise the video through Facebook.
