Vigils held for fallen St. Louis County Officer Blake Snyder

CLAYTON, MO (KTVI)- A fallen officer is being remembered.

Officer Blake Snyder was killed while responding to a disturbance call Thursday morning in south St. Louis County.

A vigil was held at Affton High School. Money was collected for Snyder's wife and the two-year-old son he leaves behind.

St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar thanked the community for their support. Some of that support was shown earlier in the night outside the Affton precinct where a police cruiser was draped with bunting. Some people left flowers and the entire class from St. Francis of Assissi made cards for officers, letting them know how much they`re appreciated.
