A local tribute to fallen officer Richard “Rick” Daly will be held at Moody Funeral Home this afternoon. The DOT expects to close Highway 19 near the funeral home to handle the 750 or more vehicles in the funeral procession. The Pike County resident was shot in the line of duty in Clayton County. He was performing a traffic stop on armed burglary suspect Jonathan Bun so the sheriff’s fugitive squad could serve an arrest warrant when the 17-year-old jumped from the vehicle and opened fire. Daly was shot several times and succumbed to his injuries at a nearby hospital. Clayton County sheriff Kem Kimbrough said it is the first time the department had an officer killed in the line of duty. He said Daly was an outstanding officer who was dedicated to his family.
