GAITHERSBURG, Md. (WUSA9) -- Dozens of people will donate blood Wednesday in honor of a Montgomery County police officer who died after he was hit by an alleged drunk driver.

County police say all 111 allotted spots for the blood drive quickly filled up after police announced their plan to honor Officer Noah Leotta. Police are planning another blood drive in honor of Officer Leotta due to the overwhelming response. 

Investigators say Reluzco had been smoking marijuana and was drinking at a Hooters restaurant in Rockville for four hours before he hit Leotta.

Participants in Wednesday's blood drive will receive a long-sleeve black T-shirt and food or coupons from Buffalo Wild Wings and Chick-fil-A.
