Hundreds of people lined the street outside Teague High School Friday afternoon to honor Trooper Damon Allen as he made it to his final resting place. 

Students from the high school lined up American flags along the road before the procession rolled through. 

"Seeing the family really moved me. I just, makes me want to reach out to their family and just know that we're all praying for them. You know the community is back there to support them and know that we're here," Macy Guerrero, a Teague High School Sophomore, said.

The Teague Fire Department also raised an American flag over the road to honor Trooper Allen. 

Just down the road, Justin Bounds raised his own American flag along Highway 84.

"This just happened so close to home for all of us that it really touched our hearts and our family," Bounds said.

Blue ribbons paved the way to Trooper Damon Allen's final resting place in Teague. The ribbons were made by members of the community who wanted to honor him.
