WASHINGTON (AP) — Two law enforcement officials who died in the line of duty last year were being honored in Washington.
The names of Margaret Anderson, a National Park Ranger, and Chris Yung, a Prince William County, Va., police officer were unveiled Tuesday morning at the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial.
Anderson was fatally shot following a traffic stop on Jan. 1, 2012 at Mount Rainier National Park in Washington state.
Yung, a former U.S. Marine, was killed in a motorcycle collision on New Year’s Eve while responding to a traffic call.
The memorial is maintained by the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, a private non-profit organization.
