ST. LOUIS – U.S. and Missouri flags atop the government buildings in St. Louis to be lowered to half-staff Sunday from sunrise to sunset in memory of St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department Officer Tamarris L. Bohannon, Missouri Governor Mike Parson said in a press release.
Officer Bohannon, 29, was shot and killed in the line of duty Saturday, August 29. He died of his injuries on August 30.

In just four years with the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department, he was honored twice with the Department’s Award of Excellence and twice as Officer of the Month,” Governor Parson said. “Officer Bohannon’s courage, commitment to excellence in policing, and devotion to his young family and the St. Louis community are his lasting legacy. We will never forget all of the good Officer Bohannon accomplished in his brief time with us.”
