A candlelight vigil in memory of slain Riverside County Sheriff’s Deputy Darnell Calhoun will be held on Tuesday, January 17th, the city of Lake Elsinore announced.
The vigil will be at 6:00 p.m. at the Lake Elsinore Sheriff’s Station, where Calhoun had been assigned, at 333 W. Limited Ave.
A Help a Hero fundraising page for Calhoun’s family had raised more than $134,000 by noon Sunday. Calhoun was married with two children and a baby on the way.
Calhoun was gunned down on Friday responding to a domestic violence call in Lakewood Village, an unincorporated area just outside the city. The accused shooter, Jesse Navarro, 42, was shot by a second responding deputy. The suspect was hospitalized in critical condition.
