Over two thousand people, many members of the law enforcement community,  gathered Sunday to celebrate the life of Athens Police Officer Elmer “Buddy” Christian.

Christian was killed Tuesday while investigating a car-jacking when he was allegedly shot by Jamie Hood.  33 year old Hood also allegedly shot Officer Tony Howard, who suffered a severe injury and is recuperating from surgery. During the ceremony Pastor Randy Crowe said the death of Officer Christian was a tremendous loss.

Hear Pastor Crowe:

After several days of eluding police, Jamie Hood voluntarily turned himself into police on live television Friday night.
