Students, faculty, and the Euless Police department are mourning the loss of Officer Richard Wong.

Officer Wong suffered a heart attack and died at the Hurst Recreation Center while playing racquetball Monday night.

Wong had been assigned to Trinity High School since 1998 as a school resource officer.

As news of his death spread, some 80 to one hundred people showed up at the school for a candlelight vigil.

A memorial has been placed at the school and more students and faculty are expected to gather again on Tuesday night at 7:45 p.m.
