LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Saturday, the Lubbockites remembered a man killed protecting citizens. Julio Herrera was the first Lubbock Police Officer ever killed in the line of duty.

One night Herrera was talking to a suspect he'd arrested when a second person snuck up behind him, grabbed his gun, and shot it four times. The shooter then stabbed Herrera three times, killing him.

If you want to see the memorial you can check it out at Aztlan Park which is located near 1st Street and Avenue K.
