This is extremely heartbreaking, her father and another police officer were shot and killed in an ambush.
Officers Edelmiro Garza, Jr., 45, and Ismael Chavez, 39, of the McAllen Police Department in Texas were shot and killed on Saturday. The officers were reportedly ambushed while responding to a domestic disturbance call at a residence.
Chavez was a former chemistry teacher and football coach, and the father to Savannah Chavez. The daughter of the slain officer posted several memories and heartfelt tributes to her loving father on Twitter.
Chavez has since deleted the tweet because it received insensitive messages from Twitter users because she used the hashtag #BlueLivesMatter.
One Twitter user responded to the tweet by saying: "I am so sorry for your loss but you didn't have to use a racist hashtag," according to Heavy.com.
