Officer Mourned

Funeral services for a Provo police  officer killed in the line of duty will be held in Orem this Saturday.   

The Provo Police Department says the services for Officer Joe Shinners will be held at the UCCU Center at Utah Valley University.  

Shinners was killed last Saturday while trying to apprehend a suspect wanted on outstanding warrants. 

 A candlelight vigil in honor of Shinners will be held tomorrow night in Provo.

Police overnight say that there is a suspect in custody but were holding the name and details of the suspect so that Officer Shinners could be honored by the department first.

Shinners has ties to Massachusetts.

His brother is a state trooper.

His father is a retired firefighter from Everett.
