MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Officers who worked with a fallen lieutenant are remembering him fondly, several days after he was killed on his way home from work. Lt. Myron Fair was killed by an alleged drunk driver last Thursday when the driver crashed into Fair, WMC reports.

Fair and Lanier worked together as sergeants in a robbery bureau more than 20 years ago.

Lanier said there has been outpouring support from the community.

For now, there aren’t any plans to create a memorial for Fair, but Lanier hopes to the department can discuss ways to honor him, especially drawing attention to the dangers of drinking and driving.
