A final good-bye for a fallen firefighter

A final good-bye for a fallen firefighter

(Cleveland) A final send-off for Lt. William Walker on Monday at Cleveland's Public Auditorium was attended by hundreds of his fellow officers wearing dress uniforms.

After the service firefighters lined up at attention with a color-guard ceremony as a bag-piper playing "Amazing Grace" proceeded Walker's casket. Walker's family walked behind the casket that had a firefighter's flag laid across.

The casket was lifted into a firetruck that took Walker to his final resting place.

Walker was 45-years-old when he was shot to death outside his home on Lampson Avenue last Sunday. Police are still looking for the suspect in Walker's murder.  Get breaking news sent to your mobile phone.Text "news" to 21095.
