This happened not in the current Fed Reserve Bldg, but in what is now the Virginia Supreme Court building across from the State Capital.
The bullet holes remain, as does the haunting sorrow of a senseless loss of a man doing his duty.

My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Rest In Peace.
