SHOW LOW, Ariz. (AP) - Funeral services are set for today for a Show Low police officer who was killed in the line of duty earlier this week.
Officer Darrin Reed was fatally shot after responding to a disturbance at a restaurant Wednesday in the town of about 10,000 people in the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest.
Authorities say the gunman was later killed during a barricade situation at a rental cabin in the nearby community of Pinetop-Lakeside.
The 50-year-old Reed had been with Show Low police since 2006 and was scheduled to retire in February.
He's survived by a wife and two children.
Police officials say Reed's funeral is scheduled for 1 p.m. Monday at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints Stake Center in Show Low.
They say the funeral is open to the public.
