LAS VEGAS (AP) - A Las Vegas police officer killed in an ambush at a pizza shop was remembered Saturday as a Renaissance man, a great police officer and a loving family man.
More than 2,400 people gathered to pay tribute to 41-year-old Alyn Beck, who was gunned down while eating lunch last Sunday along with officer Igor Soldo.
Police Sgt. Jimmy Oaks told mourners that Beck was a "great man, officer and an even better family man."
The Las Vegas Sun reports (http://bit.ly/1hYbXCH ) Joseph Beck described his brother as a "Renaissance man, carpenter, architect (and) master chef."
Investigators say the two officers were killed by an anti-government couple who went on to kill a bystander before they died in a shootout with police in a Wal-Mart store.
A memorial service for Soldo was held Thursday.
