COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho (AP) — Law enforcement officers and first responders along with community members in Coeur d'Alene (kohr duh-LAYN'), Idaho, are remembering a fallen police officer.

Thousands of mourners gathered today at a local high school to honor and remember Sgt. Greg Moore, who was shot and killed Tuesday while on patrol.

Court records say 26-year-old Jonathan Renfro admitted to the crime during an interview with law officers. He has been charged with first degree murder.

During services for the 43-year-old Moore at the Lake City High School, The Spokesman Review reports that his friends, family and fellow officers remembered him as a devoted and generous family man, dedicated public servant and big-hearted hard-worker with a sense of humor.

Coeur d'Alene Police Chief Lee White says Moore not only touched the hearts of the people closest to him, he also touched the people he saw every day.
