The annual Law Enforcement Memorial ceremony is on May 3.

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) – Kansas is honoring two Topeka officers who were killed while on duty last year by adding their names to the Law Enforcement Memorial on the Statehouse grounds.

The state plans to remember their deaths during its annual Law Enforcement Memorial Ceremony on May 3 outside the Statehouse. A candlelight vigil is scheduled for the night before at the memorial, on the northeast part of the grounds.

Cpl. David Gogian and Officer Jeffrey Atherly were shot to death in December while checking possible drug activity outside a supermarket. Their killer later was fatally shot by law enforcement officers.
