A week after Richmond police officer Daniel Ellis was shot, many residents and colleagues from around the country gathered at Eastern Kentucky University’s Alumni Coliseum in Richmond Wednesday for his funeral.
Ellis, 33, was shot while investigating a robbery last Wednesday. He died at University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital Friday.
“When Daniel sank his teeth into something he just wouldn’t let it go. That’s what he was doing last week,” Richmond Police Chief Larry Brock said during the funeral Friday.
