LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Three members of the Lubbock police honor guard will represent the department in Lancaster this weekend as a slain officer is laid to rest.
The LPD officers left Lubbock for the Metroplex around lunchtime Friday. They will join departments from across the state to show their support for fellow officers.
Officer Craig Shaw was shot and killed on duty while responding to a call last Sunday. He was the first officer on the scene. "Fortunately it is not a regular thing. But when it happens, it's important to show our resolve for the officer and his family," said Captain Greg Stevens, Lubbock Police Department.
Officer Shaw's funeral is Saturday morning at 11 a.m.
