Memorial service for slain Riverside officer scheduled for Wednesday
RIVERSIDE, Calif. (KABC) -- The Riverside community is mourning Riverside Police Officer Michael Crain, who was allegedly shot and killed by fugitive murder suspect Christopher Dorner, a former LAPD officer and Navy reservist.
A memorial service will be held Wednesday morning for Riverside Police Officer Michael Crain.
Services for the 34-year-old officer and former Marine are scheduled to begin at 10:30 a.m. at Grove Community Church. All Riverside Police Department personnel are expected to be on hand to honor their fallen brother.
A number of people, including Riverside police Chief Sergio Diaz and members of Crain's family, will speak during the memorial. The service is expected to last until around noon, when Crain's remains will be borne to Riverside National Cemetery, 22495 Van Buren Blvd.
Crain was an 11-year veteran of the Riverside Police Department and worked as a field training officer. He was with an officer trainee when Christopher Dorner allegedly ambushed the men early Thursday morning. That trainee has not been publicly identified yet, but he is expected to survive.
