HOUSTON (AP) - A Houston police sergeant who was fatally shot while responding to a domestic violence call is being remembered for his quirkiness and his service to others. Family, friends, fellow officers, and local and state officials gathered Thursday in a Houston church to honor 32-year-old Sgt. Christopher Brewster during his funeral service. He was killed Saturday. Lifelong friend JJ Cole told mourners that Brewster “had a deep reverence for what his badge meant.” Cole also said his friend was "wonderfully weird. He said Brewster loved gardening and had a backyard full of fruit trees. A 25-year-old man is charged with capital murder in Brewster's death.
