LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — The Las Vegas community stood in solidarity on Monday with the family and friends of Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Det. Justin Terry.

A massive procession of Las Vegas police officers escorted Terry's casket from downtown Las Vegas to Central Christian Church in Henderson on Monday morning.

Terry spent 21 years as a Metro Police officer. He moved to Las Vegas from southern California in 2001 to join LVMPD after studying criminal justice, his obituary says.

He was killed on June 10 — nine days after his 45th birthday — when a beam crashed down on his unmarked patrol car while he was driving on U.S. 95 in the Centennial Bowl construction zone. A truck carrying an oversized load struck the beam, causing it to fall.

Terry is survived by his wife Stacey, his sons Sean and Jacob, and his dog Camper.
