A memorial and prayer service will be held Tuesday in honor of fallen officer Lt. Patrick Weatherford, who was killed in the line of duty a year ago.

Weatherford, a 15-year veteran of the Newport Police Department, was responding to a call of a vehicle break-in near the area of Bowen Street and Newport Avenue when he was shot and killed on June 12, 2017.

More than a thousand mourners attended his funeral in Newport when he was laid to rest, according to content partner KAIT.

The media outlet reports Weatherford's memorial will be at 5:30 p.m. at Veterans Park in downtown Newport.
