Memorial service honors fallen McAllen police officers
An emotional memorial service honoring McAllen police officers Edelmiro Garza Jr. and Ismael Chavez Jr.
Officer Edelmiro Garza, known as Eddie, a U.S. marine veteran who received the national defense service medal. He served as a police officer for nine years.
Officer Ismael Chavez Jr – or Smiley - taught science at Weslaco ISD for ten years. His determination to fulfill his lifelong dream of being a police officer brought him to the McAllen Police Department, where he served for a little over two years.
Together, Garza and Chavez, responded to a domestic disturbance call on Saturday. They were met by gunfire at the door.
Two heroes who served their community with honor and made the ultimate sacrifice.
