Hundreds of people filled a Georgia church Tuesday to say their goodbyes to a fallen police officer.
Services were held at Victory Baptist Church in Rockmart for Polk County police Detective Kristen Hearne, who was fatally shot Friday when she and Officer David Goodrich investigated a stolen car found beside a rural road. Goodrich’s bulletproof vest protected him from serious injury.
The suspected gunman, Seth Brandon Spangler, 31, was arrested a few hours later, after he emerged from a patch of woods and surrendered. He faces felony murder and aggravated assault charges in the slaying of Hearne and shooting of Goodrich.
