ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Hundreds of family, friends, and first responders turned out for the memorial ride honoring Dougherty County Police Lieutenant Cliff Rouse who was shot and killed while responding to an armed robbery December 23rd.

Roughly 450 people rolled into Veterans Park this afternoon around 11:00 to honor Lieutenant Cliff Rouse, his wife, along with his mom and dad Tommy and Jackie Rouse were trying to hold back tears.

The poker run continued down Oglethorpe boulevard through the rain onto Slappey, and ended at the FOP in Lee County.

As the honor guard presented a 21 gun salute, the sun came out. Friends say it's just another reminder Rouse is looking down on them today.

So far, organizers raised roughly $11,000 for the family. Police officers along with Dougherty County EMS helped plan the memorial ride.
