SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - A Santa Fe County sheriff’s deputy who was allegedly killed by another deputy was honored at a public memorial.

KRQE-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1G7drmE ) mourners gathered at a service for Jeremy Martin on Saturday at Capital High School in Santa Fe.

Authorities say Martin was shot by fellow deputy Tai Chan at a Las Cruces hotel on Monday.

KOAT-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1rJwCsk) Chan, who was arraigned on a murder charge, resigned Wednesday.

Chan failed to show up to work or call his supervisor for two days, which is considered job abandonment under department rules.

Authorities say Chan, Martin and another man went out for a drink and the suspect and victim got into a heated argument.

Police say Chan was found with a handgun and smelled of alcohol.

Chan’s attorney declined to comment.
