The metro community gathered for a tribute to our fallen heroes Saturday at the Minnesota State Capitol.
The 13th Annual Project Blue Light ceremony was held at 6 p.m. and honored police officers who have given their lives for the job.
Brittany Schneider, the wife of fallen Lake City officer Shawn Schneider, spoke at the event.
The officer died on New Year’s Eve in 2011, nearly two weeks after he was shot in the head while responding to a domestic violence call.
