GRESHAM, Ore. (AP) - A public service is planned Monday for Jared Padgett, the Oregon teen who shot and killed a high school classmate before killing himself.

Family spokesman Deon Strommer tells The Oregonian (https://is.gd/fYI4sh) that the funeral will start at 2:30 p.m. at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Gresham.

A church spokeswoman confirmed to the newspaper that Strommer was acting on behalf of Padgett’s family.

Police say freshman Padgett shot 14-year-old Emilio Hoffman at Reynolds High School in Troutdale Tuesday before killing himself.

Padgett’s parents have apologized to Hoffman’s family, the teacher who was grazed by a bullet, and the entire community.
