Streets Named After Police Officer and Fallen Hero

Posted: Updated:

Corpus Christi Police honored a fallen hero Saturday in a street naming ceremony. Local home builder Bart Braselton recognized Captain Russel Sherman and the late W.L. Breeding by naming the streets in their honor.

W.L. Breeding Drive will intersection with "Russ" Lane. It was November of 2004 when Breeding --a Vietnam vet and a former police officer in another part of Texas-- was killed while trying to help Sherman who was chasing a bank robbery suspect. Mayor Nelda Martinez read Saturday's proclamation and Congressman Blake Farenthold was the keynote speaker.
