ST. LOUIS — The St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department, in partnership with Rebound911, has created a memorial shirt for fallen officer Tamarris Bohannon.

Bohannon was shot and killed while responding to a call in south city on Saturday.

Rebound911 shared the shirts in an Instagram post on Wednesday. The design features a black flag with a blue stripe and a St. Louis police badge in the middle. The words “Honoring the fallen” are above the flag and Bohannon's name and the date he died is beneath it.

“It is with sadness but yet an honor to present this shirt to recognize Officer Tamarris Bohannon of St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department,” Rebound911 wrote on Instagram. “During his three-and-a-half years of service, he made a positive impact on his coworkers and the community for which he worked to protect and serve.”

All of the proceeds from the shirts will go to his family.

The shirts are available in adult short sleeve, adult long sleeve and youth for $25, women’s tanks are $20 and adult hoodies are $38. The items will be available to purchase until Sept. 18.
