Family, officers joined for funeral of officer killed in crash

Posted: Updated:

WEST DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - The funeral for a West Des Moines police officer killed last week drew family, officers from across the state and residents.

The Des Moines Register reports (http://dmreg.co/2b8O76K) West Des Moines Chief Shaun LaDue choked back tears at the funeral Monday as he recalled officer Shawn Miller's dedication to his family, the police department and the community.

Miller died Aug. 3 when the motorcycle he was riding collided with a car that turned in front of him as he was returning from a court hearing in Adel.

Gov. Terry Branstad ordered all flags in Iowa be flown at half-staff from sunrise to sunset on Monday in honor of Miller.
