Thousands gather to mourn, remember and honor slain KCK police detective
Firefighters raised more than $70,000 for the family of fallen Kansas City, Kan., Police Detective Brad Lancaster.
During the Boot Block Campaign, firefighters collected money over Memorial Day weekend at 17 intersections, the Kansas City, Kan., Fire Department said in a release.
Lancaster, the father of two daughters, was fatally shot May 9 near the Kansas Speedway.
“As public safety servants, we stand together in supporting the Kansas City, Kan., Police Department and Detective Lancaster’s family,” the Fire Department said in the release. “The support from our community is overwhelming.”
A Tonganoxie man, Curtis Ayers, has been charged with capital murder in Lancaster’s death.
