Fundraiser in honor of fallen SDPD officer

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - People packed into Oggi's Pizza in Point Loma Saturday for a special fundraiser in honor of a San Diego Police Officer killed in the line of duty.

In August, Officer Jeremy Henwood was fatally wounded in City Heights. Henwood, a Marine Reservist, had returned from fighting in Afghanistan just 6 months earlier.

Fellow officers say Henwood was an extraordinary man.

"Jeremy was an extremely giving, very charitable guy. Very involved in all different aspects of the community and we miss him. I think about him every single day," Officer Brent Devore of the SDPD said.

Proceeds from Saturday's fundraiser will help pay for the cost of inscribing Officer Henwood's name on a wall for fallen officers in Washington DC.
