      Police Dedicate Highway for Trooper Killed in Dinwiddie Co.

      Dinwiddie Co., VA - The community gathered Friday morning to dedicate a section of I-85 in Dinwiddie County to Master Trooper Junius A. Walker.

      The southbound section from Route 703 overpass to the Brunswick County line will be named in the veteran's honor.

      The 63 year old was fatally shot on I-85 during a traffic stop back in March.

      Russell Brown of Chesterfield is charged with capital murder in Walker's death.

      Signs will be placed at an accessible memorial at a nearby rest area for the public to pay their respects.
