Services held for Texas officer dead 3 weeks after crash

As you remember these fallen officers, take comfort in recalling that they dedicated their lives to the same principles of honor, duty and courage that brought you to the badge. Such a life is truly rich. Take strength in knowing that when an officer falls, our resolve to serve those in need is not diminished. Our dedication to protecting those in danger is not weakened. Our commitment to remembering those with whom we shared the badge does not fade.

Godspeed, brothers and sisters. You fought the good fight. Now rest in peace…

Officer Down: Edrees Mukhtar - [San Antonio, Texas]

By PoliceOne Staff

SAN ANTONIO — An officer died Saturday after succumbing to injuries sustained three weeks ago when his squad car slid and hit an oncoming pickup truck.

Officer Edrees Mukhtar, 28, was responding to a call when his vehicle hit a wet spot and went out of control, according to ABC 13.

“I think it's a very harsh reminder, on any occasion when we lose an officer, that life is very fragile,” Police Chief William McManus told My San Antonio, “and it can be gone in an instant.”

The medical examiner ruled the death as complications of multiple blunt force injuries.

Services were held this morning for the officer, who had been with the San Antonio Police Department 19 months.
