Las Vegas has been grieving this week for the three men killed on Sunday, June 8, 2014: Las Vegas Metro Officers Alyn Beck and Igor Soldo, and a couragous citizen, Joseph Wilcox.
Today the Smith Center was filled with men and women paying their final respects to Beck; just a few days ago, the community said good-bye to Soldo.
Services for Joseph Wilcox are set for June 22.
The community is rallying around the families of the fallen. The Review Journal and Channel 8 both have lists of ways you can can help. Fundraisers to raise money for the families are still going on.
Donations for the officers can also be made to the IPOF (Injured Police Officers Fund). Condolences for the Metro Officers can be sent via email to firstname.lastname@example.org, and Metro plans on creating a memorial wall of the messages.
As a former member of the Metro Family, I've had a hard time this week. My thoughts and prayers are with the families of the fallen and all the members of Metro.
