“In memory of his dedication and service to our community, the football team will celebrate his life and what he gave back to our area,” the team’s statement says. “Officer Toney was taken from us as he protected a Gwinnett County Public School last week, doing a job he loved.”
Toney, 30, was killed Oct. 20 while responding to a suspicious vehicle call near Shiloh High School. The alleged shooter, 18-year-old Tafahree Maynard, was killed Monday after two days on the run. Isaiah Pretlow, 19, was arrested in connection with the shooting Oct. 20 and charged with aggravated assault.
Toney was laid to rest Wednesday at 12Stone Church in Lawrenceville. His body was flown to California, where he grew up and where his immediate family still lives.
