Funeral for slain Georgia officer at college where he worked

AMERICUS, Ga. (AP) – Funeral services for the second of two Georgia officers killed last week will take place Wednesday.

The funeral home handling the arrangements says officer Jody Smith will be remembered during a service at Georgia Southwestern State University.

Smith was a university police officer. The burial will follow at Howard Johnson Memorial Cemetery.

Smith and an Americus police officer, Nicholas Smarr, were shot last Wednesday responding to a domestic dispute call. Smarr was buried Sunday.

The suspected gunman was found dead later – apparently of a self-inflicted gunshot wound – inside a home where he was hiding.
