Virginia cornerback Maurice Canady honored a slain police officer on Monday at the NFL combine.

On Friday, Officer Ashley Guindon was sworn in as the newest member of the Prince William County Police Department in Virginia. On Saturday, Guindon was shot and killed on her first day on the job.

Canady paid tribute to Guindon in Indianapolis with "Officer Guindon 2/27/16 Never Forget" written on the cleats he wore to run the 40-yard dash (in which he ran a 4.49). He told NFL Network he will auction off the shoes and give the money to a memorial fund established for Guindon's family.

Canady's cousin is a police officer, and his aunt was killed in 2002.

Guindon was shot and two of her fellow officers were wounded while responding to a domestic call Saturday night in Woodbridge, Virginia. The suspect, Ronald Hamilton, is being held without bond on charges of capital murder of a police officer, assault with a firearm and first-degree murder. Hamilton's wife also was killed in the incident.
