ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Albany Police and first responders paused at 3:47 Monday afternoon for a moment of silence to honor Corporal Terry Lewis Fleming who was killed in the line of duty two years ago.

A wreath was also placed in the lobby of the Albany Police Law Enforcement Center to honor the 36-year-old officer who was killed in a crash during a chase.

Her cruiser collided with another A-P-D officer's car and burst into flames as numerous units pursued two armed robbery suspects.

Thousands of people lined her funeral route to pay tribute to her,  and today officers honored her at the moment of her crash.

Albany Police Media Manager Phyllis Banks said "So that everyone can stop for that moment and have a moment of silence to reflect on her life and what she meant to the Albany Police Department."

The two armed robbery suspects, 24-year-olds Kentrell Butler and Wesley Wilkerson, remain in the Dougherty County jail awaiting trial on murder charges.
