NEW CASTLE, Pennsylvania (WYTV) – Friends, family and police officers gathered Saturday morning to remember Bessemer’s top police officer.
Services for 56-year-old Thomas Macri were held at Saint Vitus Church In New Castle. He was buried in Hillsville.
Macri died last Sunday at his home in Shenango Township. Investigators say the officer-in-charge for Bessemer borough accidently shot himself while cleaning his pistol on his back porch.
Macri served four years in the U.S. Air Force and 27 years for the New Castle Police Department.
His family said Macri had a passion for running and that he was dedicated to his loved ones and to his community in Lawrence County.
