ROCK SPRINGS, Wyo. (AP) — A family friend and cousin say they remember a slain Las Vegas police officer as a devoted father who loved his job and enjoyed woodworking.

Alyn Beck was originally from Green River in western Wyoming. He and another officer were shot and killed Sunday by a couple who then shot another man before killing themselves at a Wal-Mart.

Beck was 41 and is survived by his wife and three children.

Family friend Ryan Dennett tells the Rock Springs Rocket-Miner Beck loved being a police officer and woodworking. He says Beck recently passed a test to be promoted to sergeant.

Mike Beck says his cousin was dedicated to his family and Mormon faith. He says Beck was a successful high school wrestler who enjoyed helping out at his uncle's ranch.
