Memorial Service Scheduled for Slain Hoonah Officers

Casey Kelly, KTOO – Juneau

A memorial service has been scheduled for the Hoonah Police officers killed last weekend in what authorities say was an ambush by a lone gunman.

Interim City Administrator Bob Prunella says Officers Tony Wallace and Matt Tokuoka will be honored in a ceremony next Wednesday at 2:00 p.m. in the Hoonah High School gym. Prunella says he’s heard the memorial will be attended by law enforcement personnel from across the country.

The suspect in the police shootings, 45-year-old John Marvin, Jr., was arraigned in Juneau Tuesday.
