At least 1,000 law enforcement officers from Iowa and across the country said a final goodbye to Des Moines Police Sergeant Tony Beminio Monday.

Beminio's funeral took place at the Lutheran Church of Hope in West Des Moines.

Just five days ago, police say a man shot and killed Beminio and Urbandale police Officer Justin Martin in separate ambushes. The suspect, Scott Greene, faces two counts of first degree murder.

But Greene was not the focus on Monday. Instead, family, friends, and fellow officers remembered Sergeant Beminio and his life that he had dedicated to serving others.
