KANSAS CITY, Mo. (KCTV) - The funeral for fallen North Kansas City Officer Daniel Vasquez took place Wednesday at 9 a.m. at Vineyard Church, located at 12300 NW Arrowhead Trafficway in Kansas City.

Hundreds attended a funeral service for the slain North Kansas City police officer, killed in the line of duty a week ago.

Vasquez, 32, was shot and killed the morning of July 19 while conducting a traffic stop near 21st Street and Clay Street on a vehicle, allegedly by the vehicle’s driver. A manhunt ensued, and 24-year-old Joshua Rocha was arrested. He remains in the Clay County Detention Center without bond, charged with first-degree murder and armed criminal action in Vasquez’s death. Rocha has a court hearing set for later this week.
