Peace officer vigil

Posted: Updated:

The name of fallen Austin Police Officer, Jaime Padron, is now on  the Peace Officers Memorial on the State Capitol grounds.
    Hundreds turned out to honor all fallen Texas officers on the north grounds Sunday evening.
    APD Senior Patrol Officer Padron was responding to a call when he was shot and killed last April at a North Austin Walmart.
    The Peace Officers' Memorial Foundation remembers those who paid the ultimate sacrifice while serving our community.
    Donna Kleman is a chaplain with the Taylor County Sheriff's Office.
    "A lot of times we hear about these tragedies of loss and the community will move on but these families will never, although they will move forward, this will always be a part of their lives."
    The foundation is expected to host a memorial ceremony Monday.
