ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – It’s been two days since officer Dan Webster passed away and the Albuquerque community is still very much shaken up. Today many came out to pay their respects at a public memorial.
A public viewing and memorial was open for Officer Webster at the Strong-Thorne Chapel near I-25. The memorial included a picture of officer Webster, a hand-made banner from a local elementary school, and a book that hundreds signed. Webster was also a war veteran and to honor his services,combat gear was placed right next to the memorial.
“I knew he was an Army veteran, and for 20 years, and he’s like me, retired, and it hurt me that he served our country and was shot like that,” said Stuart Barth.
If you’d like to visit the memorial, it’ll be open for the public from 9 am to 4 pm at the Strong Thorne Chapel once again on Sunday.
