EL PASO, TX — The El Paso County Sheriff's Officers Association organized an escort for the daughter of a fallen deputy.

According to officials, several law enforcement agencies escorted the daughter of fallen deputy Peter Herrera into school Monday morning.

Last week, deputy Herrera, who was critically wounded in a shooting during a traffic stop, died.

Authorities had said on Friday that they expected Herrera to survive the shooting because he was wearing a protective vest.

Several fundraisers have been created to help Herrera's family with expenses. You can donate through Facebook or GoFundMe .
