(KAIR)--The Leavenworth Police Department is mourning the loss of one of their own, following the death of 27-year-old Police Officer Matthew Weis.

A release posted to social media by Leavenworth Police Chief Pat Kitchens says Weis died unexpectedly Sunday at his Leavenworth home from what's believed to be medical complications.

The release states that Weis "was a Police Officer for a little over three years at the Leavenworth Police Department," coming to the local area from Bakersfield, California to attend the University of St. Mary and play baseball. Weis was an intern at the Police Department and was hired immediately upon graduating from St. Mary.

Weis was recently selected as the newest member of the SWAT Team.

The Police Department is working with his family on the arrangements.
