Hundreds gather to mourn fallen Columbus police officer

Hundreds of police officers from around central Ohio and around the state gathered in Worthington Tuesday for the funeral of slain Columbus police officer Bryan Hurst.

Hurst was remembered as a hero for shooting a would-be bank robber during last week’s shootout that claimed his life. He was also remembered as a loving father and husband.

The suspect in Hurst’s murder, Daryl Lawrence is charged with the attempted robbery of the bank. He is being treated for gunshot wounds at Grant Medical Center.
