Funeral services are today for the officer gunned down in Douglas County last weekend. Sheriff's Deputy Zackari Parrish was 29. There are many outstanding questions about what happened and why the shooter opened fire on Parrish and other officers, four of whom were injured, along with two civilians. But the incident prompted Colorado Matters to look into the leading causes of officer deaths on duty.

Now, Weiland's family is hoping a permanent memorial will help his legacy live on. "I've been to the memorial with Jason," said Kara Weiland, Jason's wife. Kara remembers her and Jason's trip to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington D.C. "It's just a somber place of just reflecting and remembering those we've lost," said Kara. They took the trip in 2015. Now, she's preparing to go again.
