Law enforcement, Navy personnel mourn slain Dallas officer

🕐 1 min read

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Hundreds of law enforcement officers from across the country have joined with Navy personnel to honor Patrick Zamarripa, one of the officers slain last week in Dallas by a gunman.

A traditional Catholic funeral service was held Saturday in Fort Worth for the 32-year-old Zamarripa, who served eight years on active duty in the Navy and then in the reserves before joining the police force.

Dallas police Chief David Brown told those gathered that Zamarripa’s service to his community was deeply personal because he was willing to give his life to help others.

Zamarripa was one of the five officers killed during a march protesting recent fatal shootings of black men in Minnesota and Louisiana by police.

Funerals for the other officers were held earlier in the week.
