DALLAS (AP) — Funerals are set to begin for the five officers slain by a sniper during a protest last week in downtown Dallas.

Funerals will be held later Wednesday for Dallas Police Sr. Cpl. Lorne Ahrens, Dallas Police Sgt. Michael Smith and Dallas Area Rapid Transit Officer Brent Thompson.

Ahrens’ funeral will be held in Plano. Smith’s funeral at the Farmers Branch church he and his family attended will be followed the next day with a service at the Dallas church where he worked security.

After a Dallas memorial service, Thompson’s funeral will be at a church in Corsicana, the town south of Dallas where he lived.

Dallas Police Officer Michael Krol’s funeral is set for Friday, and Dallas police Officer Patrick Zamarripa’s funeral will be held Saturday.
