A vigil was held Saturday evening at the Santa Clarita Sheriff’s Station in honor Sgt. Steve Owen, the 29-year veteran of the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department who was shot while on duty Oct. 5 in Lancaster.
Owen’s family released a statement offering thanks to all those supporting the family during this difficult time.
“We want to say thank you for everyone who has stood in support, prayed, written letters, shared stories and are continuing to grieve beside us in honor of our fallen Hero,” said Owen’s family in the statement.
Owen was shot while responding to a call of a residential burglary in Lancaster.
