Hundreds to mourn death of Alhambra police officer
Hundreds of officers from across the region are expected to attend.
Stringer suffered fatal injuries Sunday when his cruiser collided with another driven by Officer Juan Carlos Mejia, also of the Alhambra Police Department.
Stringer, who was 26, will be memorialized at 1 p.m. at the Calvary Chapel on Golden Springs Drive with a funeral procession expected to arrive around noon.
Stringer was responding to a possible parking lot robbery when the cars collided at Garfield Avenue and Main Street. Both officers were rushed to Huntington Memorial hospital, where Stringer died of his injuries.
He was the fourth Alhambra officer to lose his life in the line of duty.
