UPPER MARLBORO, Md. (AP) -- A funeral is being held for a plainclothes narcotics officer who was killed in a shootout at a Maryland police station.
Prince George's County Detective Jacai Colson was killed March 13 by one of his fellow officers after a man began firing at a police station in Landover. A wounded suspect, 22-year-old Michael Ford, was arrested and now faces more than two dozen charges including second-degree murder.
Friday's funeral for the 28-year-old Colson, a four-year veteran of the department, is being held at the First Baptist Church of Glenarden in Upper Marlboro.
The funeral begins at 11 a.m. and is open to the public.
