(WEAA) Family, friends and public officials paid their final respects to 39-year-old Officer Keona Holley On Tuesday.

Holley, a Baltimore police officer, was on duty in her patrol car when she was shot overnight on Dec. 16.

“Officer Keona Holley was a devoted public servant who committed her life to making Baltimore a better place. As we lay her to rest today, I will continue to work tirelessly to ensure that her legacy lives on,” said Baltimore Mayor Brandon Scott.

“Keona served her city with passion and dedication, and she took immense pride in being a police officer. May she rest in peace”, Governor Larry Hogan shared.

The funeral was held at the Baltimore Convention Center on West Pratt Street.

Two men have been arrested and charged in her shooting as well as a second shooting soon afterward that left a man dead.
