ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — A highly decorated Albuquerque police officer and former Army Ranger who was fatally shot in the line of duty will be laid to rest Tuesday, with hundreds expected to pay their respects to the police veteran.

The funeral for Officer Daniel Webster — described by colleagues as one of the city's "finest officers" — will be held at the Albuquerque Convention Center.

Webster, who was 47, died Thursday at University of New Mexico hospital from injuries sustained from a shooting a little more than a week earlier.

Police say he had stopped Davon Lymon outside a pharmacy for riding a motorcycle with a stolen license plate when Lymon opened fired.

Gov. Susana Martinez and local leaders plan to attend the funeral for Webster.
