TUCSON, AZ — Services took place Saturday morning for a Tohono O’odham tribal police officer who was killed last month after authorities say a suspect stole his patrol vehicle and ran him over with it.

The services for Bryan Brown were held at the Desert Diamond Casino in Sahuarita at 10 a.m.

The services included full police honors, including a procession of law enforcement vehicles, a 21-gun salute and a flyover.

Brown was killed on Aug. 27 after responding to a call at another tribal casino near Why, Arizona.

The suspect was arrested and faces murder charges.
