SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Memorial services for a Sacramento police officer shot and killed in the line of duty will be held Thursday.

Sacramento police say that Officer Tara O’Sullivan will be honored at the Bayside Church’s Adventure Campus in Roseville, California.

Authorities say Ramos opened fire as O’Sullivan and other officers helped an unidentified woman pack her belongings from the garage of a North Sacramento home.

Police say Ramos was heavily armed and fired dozens of times at officers over an hours-long standoff.

Public defender Norm Dawson has declined to comment on behalf of Ramos until he has more details about the case.
