Edmonton prepares to bid farewell to 2 slain police officers at regimental funeral Monday

Edmontonians will have the opportunity to honour the lives of constables Travis Jordan and Brett Ryan, and give thanks for their service ahead of a regimental funeral for the slain police officers on Monday afternoon.

As Jordan and Ryan’s bodies are transported from a south Edmonton funeral home to Rogers Place, where the funeral is being held, Edmontonians are being invited to line the procession route to pay their respects and say their goodbyes.

Jordan, 35, and Ryan, 30, were responding to a call at an apartment complex in Edmonton’s Inglewood neighbourhood on March 16 when they were shot and killed by a 16-year-old male. Investigators believe the officers were shot before they had a chance to even pull out their guns. The suspect died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound while his mother remains in hospital after sustaining injuries when she tried to wrestle the gun away from her son.
