East 8th Street, which runs in front of the Mission Police Department, has been re-named Corporal Speedy Drive.
City leaders, police officers, and family members of the late Corporal Jose Luis Espericueta, gathered Saturday for the unveiling of the new street signs. The dedication ceremony was held on what would have been Espericueta’s 45th birthday.
Espericueta was shot and killed by an armed man he was chasing outside an RV park near Business 83 and Stewart Road the night of June 20th. Espericueta was a 13-year police veteran.
