Omaha officer and Iowa native Kerrie Orozco honored with memorial

Posted: Updated:
OMAHA (WOWT) -

An Omaha officer and Iowa native is being honored with special planting that will serve as a memorial.

Crews are clearing the planters at the Omaha Police Department to make room for a new memorial for Kerrie Orozco, an officer shot earlier this year while serving an arrest warrant. Orozco was rushed to a hospital where she died. The shooting happened a day before she was scheduled to start her maternity leave.

A company called Holidynamics donated a new LED tree that will shine blue in her honor.

No date for installation has been set yet.
