SANTA CRUZ COUNTY, Calif. (KRON) – A memorial service for Sergeant Damon Gutzwiller was held Wednesday morning.

The Santa Cruz County sheriff’s deputy was killed in a shooting on June 6.

The man charged with his murder is now also charged in a deadly drive-by shooting of a federal officer in Oakland.

Federal authorities charged Steven Carrillo with the murder of Pat Underwood.

The FBI says Carrillo went to Oakland on May 29 knowing there would be a George Floyd protest.

Gutzwiller was a 14-year veteran of the sheriff’s office and is survived by his pregnant wife and young child.

A procession is scheduled to begin at 7:45 a.m. in Santa Cruz.

The service will start at 10 a.m.
