A vigil was held Saturday at the 2nd Precinct in Detroit for fallen officer Darren Weathers.

Weathers, 25, died after a car crash that DPD Chief James Craig says while he was either participating in, or heading to an unsanctioned training operation, when he ran a red light and struck another vehicle. The passengers inside that car are okay.

Friends, family and many others gathered to mourn Weathers death. 

"Lucky lost his life doing his job; Lucky was preforming his duty, in an exceptional way. He was given direction and he followed it," Police Chief James Craig said.

Viewing will be held Sunday February 18th from 5 pm to 8 pm and Monday February 19th from 2pm to 8pm.

Funeral service will be held at Second Ebenezer Church on Tuesday February 20.  Family hour at 10 am and service at 11 am.
