Officers, firefighters and dozens more held candles and stood before the crowd to honor Galt Police officer Kevin Tonn, who was shot and killed Tuesday in the line of duty.

Several youth who worked with Tonn spoke of him as a friend who was funny and fun, yet always looking out for their best interest.

“We remember him as very helpful to¬†us, as really dedicated to his work,” Guadalupe Alonso.

“He loved above all things keeping the community safe and above that was the children,” said Tonn’s close friend T. Miranda.

Many talked about his K-9 partner and how much Tonn loved him.

The City of Galt said this is the first time an officer was killed in the line of duty.

“Kevin will be okay where he is. He is in a good place. Now he will watch over all of us forever.”
