JOPPA, Md. (AP) - One of two Harford County Sheriff’s deputies killed in the line of duty is being remembered as an “amazing person” who “brought honor to his badge.”

Mourners packed the Mountain Christian Church in Joppa on Wednesday for the funeral of Senior Deputy Patrick Dailey, a 30-year veteran of the department and volunteer firefighter. Dailey was shot and killed while responding to a complaint at an Abingdon restaurant. Senior Deputy Mark Logsdon was also slain before deputies killed the gunman.

Dailey’s body arrived on a fire truck escorted by police motorcycles, according to a pool report. His son, Brian, says after hearing many stories about his father, he can see he “was an amazing person.”

Gov. Larry Hogan called Dailey “a man who brought honor to his badge every day.”
