A Euless Chick-fil-A is honoring murdered officer David Hofer with its version of a Missing Man Table.
The table features a photo, flowers, a folded American flag and a place setting for the fallen officer. It’s a take on the table which is set up to honor and remember dead, missing or imprisoned U.S. service members.
Some Chick-fil-A locations across the United States put up Missing Man Tables in November for Veterans Day. The Euless location decided it wanted to remember the slain officer with a Missing Man Table of its own.
Hofer, 29, was killed last week in a shootout with a suspect who was high on meth in a public park. Brian Gonzalez, 22, stole weapons from a nearby house he used in the gun fight. Police killed Gonzalez in the shootout.
Thousands of people attended a Saturday memorial service honoring Hofer in Bedford at Pennington Field. The memorial service had a 21-gun-salute, bagpipes and speeches from Euless PD Chief Michael Brown, Hofer’s fiancé and Hofer’s father. A memorial service was also held on Monday in New York City.
Hofer spent five years with the NYPD before moving to Texas, where he worked for two years with the Euless police department.
