I heard a noise and looked out the window of our studios on the top floor of the Doubletree Hotel in downtown Billings.

I hadn't yet seen the news that the motorcade carrying fallen Gallatin County Sheriff's Deputy Jake Allmendinger was going to be passing through downtown, but as soon as we saw the long line of flashing lights- we knew exactly what it was: law enforcement, firefighters, and other first responders honoring one of their own.

Below is a video shared by Billings Firefighters on their Facebook page. I also shared the view from above as the motorcade honoring Deputy Allmendinger passed through Billings. Traffic was blocked at First Avenue South and you could see the motorcade stretching all the way to the interstate.
