BALTIMORE (WJZ) — City officials on Friday evening dedicated a street to slain Baltimore Police Officer Keona Holley, who was fatally shot last year in the line of duty.

Holley’s family joined Mayor Brandon Scott and Police Commissioner Michael Harrison for the ceremony, which happened at 6 p.m. at the corner of Hazel Street and Pennington Avenue, the same intersection where she was shot.

Holley was seated in her patrol car on Pennington Avenue about 1:30 a.m. Dec. 16 when she was shot. She was rushed to the hospital, where she remained in the ICU until she was removed from life support a week later.

Two men suspected in Holley’s shooting and a second killing the same morning were taken into custody later that day. They’re awaiting trial on murder and other charges in both killings.

Holley, a 39-year-old mother of four, was a two-year veteran of the Baltimore Police Department. She was laid to rest in January at King Memorial Park.

Her murder inspired legislation that would have made anyone convicted of killing, or attempting or conspiring to murder, a police officer, ineligible for parole. That bill was later repurposed into a scholarship fund for the children of slain officers.
