A family, brothers in blue, and a community joined together Friday to say goodbye to 22-year-old Officer Alexander Thalmann.
Hundreds of people filled Temple Baptist Church Friday afternoon for the officer’s funeral.
After the hour-long service, police officers lined a church walkway as a Marine honor guard brought the casket to a horse drawn caisson.
Investigators said the 22-year-old officer was shot last Friday night at Craven Terrace in pursuit of a suspect. That man was killed by return gunfire, according to police.
