Memorial ride, fundraiser planned for Saturday

A memorial motorcycle ride and fundraiser is planned for Saturday for the families of the Metro Police officers killed in a shooting rampage in June.

Red Rock Harley-Davidson is sponsoring the event. There is no fee to participate but people are encouraged to donate. All donations will go to the families of Officers Alyn Beck and Igor Soldo. Money will also be donated to the family of Joseph Wilcox, the citizen who tried to step in and stop the rampage.

The ride will start at 9 a.m. at the shop at Rainbow Boulevard and Sahara Avenue. It will then stop at the Southern Nevada Law Enforcement Memorial next to the Metropolitan Police Department Academy at Cheyenne Avenue and Hualapai Way.

It will end at the Mountain Springs Saloon on State Route 160.

Officers Beck and Soldo were ambushed and killed while having lunch at a Cici’s Pizza restaurant on Nellis Boulevard and Stewart Avenue June 8. The two shooters, Jerad and Amanda Miller, then went across the street and started a firefight with police. Wilcox had tried to stop the Millers when the came into the store, but Amanda Miller shot and killed him.
