Officer Edward Ahrens died from complications related to a gunshot wound he received 23 years earlier.

Officer Ahrens was questioning a narcotics suspect near the corner of 118th Street and 7th Avenue, when he was shot in the stomach. The suspect was arrested two blocks away by another officer.

The officer was forced to retire in 1979 due to complications from the wound, and died as a direct result of those complications on January 10, 1998.

Officer Ahrens, who was 31 years old at the time of the incident, was assigned to the 28th Precinct.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 14th anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer who was murdered in the the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory 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.
