3-year-old in police uniform prays for Officer Billa


The city of Mobile stood still Tuesday, as thousands paid their final respects to Officer Justin Billa. The officer's story reached far beyond the Port City -- leaving an impact on a young boy in Jackson.

3-year-old DJ Rogers wants to be a police officer when he grows up. His parents say that's why the death of Officer Justin Billa brought him to tears.

As the family watched the funeral live on FOX10 News, DJ stopped to say a prayer whenever Billa's photo was on the screen. His mother snapped photos of DJ praying in a police uniform. The photos got a lot of love on social media, so we went to Jackson to meet DJ in person.
