High school basketball game raises money for families of 2 fallen CPD officers

BURBANK, Ill. (WLS) -- Two fallen Chicago police officers were honored during a high school basketball game Tuesday night.

Reavis High School in Burbank hosted a Heroes Night, raising money for the families of officers Eduardo Marmolejo and Conrad Gary.

The officers were killed in December when they were struck by a train traveling on Metra tracks.

The school has several connections to both men, including a nephew of Marmolejo's who is currently a student there.

Some of the money raised Tuesday night will go to a scholarship named after Officers Marmolejo and Gary.
