Mahnomen deputy Dewey funeral in Brooklyn Park

BROOKLYN PARK, Minn. — Law enforcement officers from around the state are gathering in Brooklyn Park for the funeral of Mahnomen County Deputy Christopher Dewey.

The funeral is at 11 a.m. Wednesday at Living Word Christian Center in Brooklyn Park. There will be a procession from there to the burial site at Crystal Lake Cemetery in north Minneapolis.

Dewey was shot in the head and stomach in February 2009 while checking out a report of shots fired in a Mahnomen neighborhood. He never fully recovered and died Aug. 9.
