San Diego honored Police Officer Jonathan "JD" DeGuzman on Friday, August 5, as he was laid to rest, one week after he was shot to death behind the wheel of his patrol car. His partner was critically wounded and is recovering in a local hospital.

More than 2,000 police officers from across the country, some from as far away as Chicage and New York City, were in attendance to pay their respects to Officer DeGuzman, aged 43, who leaves behind his wife, a son, a daughter, and parents--all of whose lives will never be the same.

For the city of San Diego, this is a terrible and irreplaceable loss. For Officer DeGuzman's family, it is a devastating wound that can never truly heal.
600 police vehicles escorted the funeral procession.
