Hundreds gather to pray for Trooper Ponder and law enforcement
More than 500 people gathered to pray for fallen Kentucky State Trooper Cameron Ponder, his family, law enforcement, first responders and correctional facility staff Sunday evening in Lyon County.
Lyon County Judge Executive Wade White organized the event that took place at the Veterans Plaza in front of the Judicial Center in Eddyville, KY.
White says the group sang Amazing Grace led by Tom Peek and Amye Sutton. They also had three people pray to the group. Then they lowered and raised a flag to Taps. White said officers from Graves, Providence, Crittenden, and Caldwell were there along with Kentucky State Police.
