First responders from around the state gathered at the Freestone County Courthouse to remember fallen Trooper Damon Allen.

"This community comes together in times of tragedy and triumph," said Freestone County resident Heather Dunson.

Allen was shot and killed walking back to his squad car during a routine traffic stop on Thanksgiving Day.

The suspect, DaBrett Black, was arrested 100 miles away from the crime scene and remains in the Brazos County Jail charged with Capital Murder.
