JOPPA, Md. (AP) - The Harford County sheriff’s deputies killed in the line of duty earlier this month have been honored with Medals of Honor.

Both families of deputies Senior Deputy Patrick Dailey and Senior Deputy Mark Logsdon were awarded this week with the Sheriff’s Office Medal of Honor, the highest recognition of that office.

Dailey was shot and killed while responding to a complaint at an Abingdon restaurant on Feb. 10. Logsdon was also slain before deputies killed the gunman.

The second day of visitation for Logsdon is being held 2-9 p.m. Friday at the Mountain Christian Church in Joppa. His funeral service is scheduled for Saturday morning at Harford Community College.

The funeral for Dailey was held on Wednesday.
