CONNELLSVILLE, Pa. (AP) - Plans to honor a slain police officer who was also a Civil War veteran went awry when signs renaming a southwestern Pennsylvania bridge got his name wrong.

Connellsville police Officer McCray Robb was just 33 when a suspect grabbed Robb's gun and shot him May 25, 1882.

A ceremony renaming the borough's West Crawford Avenue Bridge in Robb's honor was held Saturday. But signs printed by the Department of Transportation and installed Monday incorrectly identified the officer as Robb McCray.

PennDOT spokeswoman Valerie Petersen says the signs were printed based on the bill sponsored by retiring Democratic state Sen. Richard Kasunic.

An aide for incoming Republican state Sen. Pat Stefano says the lawmaker will work to correct the mistake, perhaps by sponsoring an amended bill.
