A public ceremony will be held Wednesday afternoon for a Galt police officer who was killed in the line of duty one year ago today.

Kevin Tonn, 35, was fatally shot Jan. 15, 2013 after responding to a reported burglary in Galt. His suspected shooter, 30-year-old Humphrey Gascon, then turned the gun on himself.

Tonn’s death sent shock waves through his small department, a force of fewer than 40.

The ceremony is set for 2 p.m. at the southeast corner of C Street and Civic Drive at Galt City Hall.

A graveside remembrance was held Wednesday morning at East Lawn Mortuary & Sierra Hills Memorial Park.

Call The Bee’s Bill Lindelof, (916) 321-1079.
