Funeral services held for slain Riverside officer


Michael Crain, the Riverside Police Department officer who was killed in an alleged ambush by ex-cop Christopher Jordan Dorner, is expected to be buried.

A funeral service is scheduled for Crain at 10:30 a.m. at the Grove Community Church in Riverside.

The 11-year veteran of the Riverside Police Department was shot on February 7. Police said Crain and his partner were attacked as they sat at a red light in Riverside in a marked patrol car in what Riverside Police Chief Sergio Diaz said was a "cowardly ambush."

The men were allegedly fired upon by Dorner, a former LAPD officer and led to a much-spoken-about manhunt.
