Funeral set for slain Md. trooper

By Washington Post Editors

Maryland State Police say the funeral for a slain trooper will be held next week.

Trooper 1st Class Wesley W. Brown, 24, was shot and killed early Friday at an Applebee's restaurant in Prince George's County. State police said Saturday that Brown's family announced that there will be a public viewing at 4 p.m. June 18 at Abyssinia Baptist Church in Capitol Heights.

Funeral services will then be at 10 a.m. June 19 at Jericho City of Praise in Landover, followed by burial at Lincoln Memorial Cemetery in Suitland.

County police continued their search Saturday for a person of interest in the case.

Condolences to his friends and family. By all accounts Trooper Brown was one heck of a good guy who tried to give something back to his community.

I had a bad experience with a P.G. officer recently, but that doesn't make all of them bad. May God Bless the family of the trooper and I pray that the coward that did this be caught, because if he couldn't pay for his food he had no business ordering food he couldn't afford that is why they have soup kitchens. May GOD Bless.
