WASHINGTON, D.C. (AP) - A national memorial to slain law enforcement officers will add the name of a Virginia Tech police officer a gunman shot to death last year.
Officials say they'll unveil the engraved names of Deriek Crouse and two others killed in 2011 on Thursday at the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington, D.C.
The memorial is adding 362 names this spring, including 163 officers killed in 2011 plus 199 recently discovered officers who died in previous years. The names will be dedicated next month and will be part of the 19,660 officers honored on the memorial.
A student from nearby Radford University ambushed and fatally shot Crouse as he was working a traffic stop on the Blacksburg campus on December 8. The gunman killed himself shortly afterward.
