More than 2,000 police officers, including 860 Mounties in their traditional red serge and 450 officers from the municipal police force in nearby Edmonton, gathered on the streets of St. Albert Monday to say a final farewell Const. David Wynn.

A riderless horse, with a pair of brown boots turned backward in the stirrups, led the black hearse carrying Wynn's coffin.

Wynn died after he and auxiliary Const. Derek Bond were shot during a struggle with a suspected car thief at a casino in St. Albert, just outside of Edmonton, earlier this month.

Today, his family, friends and neighbours came to pay their final respects.
