Officer Henry Nelson of the Sunset Police Department was shot and killed. Shameka Johnson died from stab wounds. Both victims will be laid to rest on Saturday.

Jacqueline Johnson, Surlay Johnson, and Courtney Jolievette survived the attack and continued to recover from their injuries. For a tight knit town like Sunset, any tragedy is felt by everyone.  The community continues to grieve after last week’s fatal stabbing and shooting claimed the lives of Shameka Johnson and Officer Henry Nelson.

On Wednesday night, the people of Sunset gathered on Marie Street to honor the lives of Shameka and Henry with a candlelight vigil.
