Around 100 Anne Arundel and Annapolis police officers to attend slain Harford deputy's funeral.

More than 100 law enforcement officers from Anne Arundel County and Annapolis on Wednesday attended the funeral of a Harford County Sheriff's deputy who was gunned down last week in Abingdon.

The funeral for Senior Deputy Patrick Dailey was held Wednesday morning in Joppa. About 100 county police officers, many attending on their own time, attended, said department spokesman Lt. Ryan Frashure.

The department also provided motorcycles and made members of its honor guard available for the ceremony. In addition, an agency helicopter made "fly by" with aviation units from about a half-dozen other departments, Frashure said.

Annapolis police and the Anne Arundel Sheriff's Office each sent about a dozen officers and deputies to Dailey's funeral.

Anne Arundel and Annapolis police expect to send additional officers to the funeral of Senior Deputy Mark Lodgson this Saturday in Bel Air.

Dailey and Lodgson were fatally shot last Wednesday in Abingdon after responding to a call at a Panera Bread about a man with open warrants. Police say the man, 68-year-old David Brian Evans, shot the Dailey and fled the restaurant.

Evans then shot Lodgson before other deputies shot and killed Evans in a nearby parking lot, according to the Baltimore Sun.
