Midland Says Goodbye to Fallen Officer Ryan McCandless
Officer Ryan McCandless was working in South Dakota on patrol with two other officers earlier this month when they stopped a car. A person inside that car pulled out a gun and McCandless was shot and killed. The officer's funeral was held today in Midland, where he grew up. McCandless worked as a police officer in Rapid City, South Dakota for the past six years. Dozens of officers from all over the state and country attended the funeral. McCandless worked for the Mecosta County Sheriff's Office while he was attending Ferris State Univeristy. 9&10's Eric Lloyd and photojournalist Joel Deaner were there for the funeral and have more details.
