LONOKE, AR - Police officers from across the U.S. packed a church hall in Mountain Home today to honor a veteran officer many of them had never met.

The service was to honor Gassville police officer Jim Sell, who was shot and killed during a routine traffic stop by a teenager wanted for a gun-and-hatchet attack at a Massachusetts gay bar.
