LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — A memorial service was held Monday for fallen Las Vegas Metro Police Det. Justin Terry.

Terry, 45, was killed while on duty on June 10 when a steel beam fell on U.S. 95 hitting his unmarked police vehicle.

Terry leaves behind his wife, Stacey, and his two sons, Sean and Jacob, his obituary said. He is remembered as a family man, dog-dad, and “friend to so many.”
