Officer Edgar Wright succumbed to injuries sustained two days earlier in a gun battle with two robbery suspects near Garfield, Arkansas.

Constable Will Dalton, of the Rogers Police Department, Arkansas, was also shot and killed as he and several officers attempted to arrest the suspects.

One of the suspects was shot and killed and the other captured when they mistakenly jumped into a boxcar containing 30 posse members sent to arrest them while they attempted to escape.

Time never dimishes respect and you will always be honored and revered. I Pray for solace for all those who love and miss you for I know both the pain and pride are forever.

Rest In Peace
