A third police officer is dead following a weekend shooting in Odessa.

Corporal Abel Marquez passed away just after 3 p.m. Wednesday afternoon. He and his two brothers made an agreement long ago, that if one of them should be killed in the line of duty, life support would be removed, and their organs donated.

Earlier on Wednesday, Sergeant Pete Marquez and Corporal Philip Marquez attended the funerals of fellow officers Cpl. Scott Gardner and Cpl. Arlie Jones. Services for each of those men were held separately in Odessa. The Lubbock Police Department provided 11 motorcycle officers to escort and monitor traffic.

All three officers were shot and killed while responding to a domestic disturbance call in Odessa Saturday night. The suspect, Larry White, is in custody charged with capital murder.  

A fund is now in place to help the families of the Odessa officers with their expenses.  If you would like to make a donation, you can do so at any branch of Lubbock National Bank.
