ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Albuquerque police say the funeral for the officer fatally shot and wounded while on duty has been set for Tuesday at the Albuquerque Convention Center.

Police spokeswoman Celina Espinoza says the service for Officer Daniel Webster will begin at 11 a.m., and a funeral procession to Vista Verde Memorial Park will follow.

Webster joined the Albuquerque Police Department in 2006 after serving 20 years in the U.S. Army.

In 2013, he was named Albuquerque’s officer of the year, with a supervisor saying he always volunteered for high-priority calls.

Police say Webster was shot Oct. 21 as he stopped a man for riding a motorcyle with a stolen license plate and tried to take him into custody.

Webster died early Thursday at University of New Mexico Hospital.

He was 47.
