ODESSA, Texas (Big 2/Fox 24) – The Odessa Police Department will honor Cpl. Abel Marquez on Saturday.

Cpl. Arlie Jones and Cpl. Scott Gardner were killed while responded to a domestic violence call back on Sept. 8, 2007. Cpl. Marquez was injured and taken to the hospital, where he died a few days later.

Each year, the OPD honors their memory by placing a wreath at the memorial statue outside of the Police Department.

Earlier this week, the Department paid tribute to Gardner and Jones and they will do so again on Saturday for Marquez.

Residents who wish to pay their respects to the officers are asked to come between sunrise and sunset.
