Community vigil for slain sheriff’s deputy to be held in Lake Elsinore on Tuesday evening

A candlelight vigil in memory of slain Riverside County Sheriff’s Deputy Darnell Calhoun will be held on Tuesday, January 17th, the city of Lake Elsinore announced.

The community vigil will be at 6:00 p.m. at the Lake Elsinore Sheriff’s Station, where Calhoun had been assigned, at 333 W. Limited Ave.

A Help a Hero fundraising page for Calhoun’s family had raised more than $134,000 by noon Sunday. Calhoun was married with two children and a baby on the way.

Calhoun was gunned down on Friday responding to a domestic violence call in Lakewood Village, an unincorporated area just outside the city. The accused shooter, Jesse Navarro, 42, was shot by a second responding deputy. The suspect was hospitalized in critical condition.
