ABINGDON, Md. (AP) - Gov. Larry Hogan has dedicated a portion of a highway in Harford County in honor of two sheriff’s deputies who were shot and killed in the line of duty.

The governor unveiled new highway signs Wednesday dedicating a portion of Route 924 in honor of Senior Deputy Patrick Dailey and Deputy First Class Mark Logsdon.

The legislature unanimously approved legislation to dedicate the stretch of highway to the deputies this session.

Hogan says the dedication notes that the lives of Dailey and Logsdon are marked not only not only by the last call they answered, but by a lifetime’s worth of service to their community, their state and their country.

The deputies were killed by a gunman at an Abingdon shopping center in February. The gunman died in a shootout.
