Photo of the Week: Honoring the fallen
Lincoln Police and the Nebraska state capitol, lit up in blue, honored Investigator Mario Herrera after he died in the line of duty this month
This week's photo comes from Nathaniel Grimm of the Lincoln Police Department in Lincoln, Nebraska.
This photo shows a night of remembrance before Investigator Mario Herrera's funeral. Herrera died in the line of duty September 7 two weeks after he was shot and wounded while serving a warrant. In the photo, a Lincoln Police cruiser memorial sits outside the Lincoln/Lancaster County Hall of Justice with the Nebraska state capitol lit blue in Herrera's honor.
The agency said in a statement that Herrera was "an exemplary human being who just happened to be a Lincoln police officer.”
