Texas Roadhouse has reserved a table in memoriam for slain Deputy Jacob Keltner at the chain’s Rockford location.
The restaurant, located at 7240 Walton Street, said via Facebook that it’s Fallen Hero table will be set aside until Keltner’s funeral on Tuesday, March 12th.
Keltner was shot outside the Extended Stay America hotel at 747 N. Bell Schol Road Thursday morning. He was with a Marshal Service Fugitive Task Force trying to serve a warrant on a suspect.
Keltner was rushed to a local hospital in critical condition following the shooting, and was later pronounced dead.
McHenry County Sheriff Bill Primm says Keltner was hired by the department in 2006. He described Keltner as a hard working, dedicated man who came from a law enforcement family.
