EXETER, N.H. (AP) - Dozens of Maine police officers are among those paying tribute to a New Hampshire officer who was shot to death.

The memorial service for Stephen Arkell of the Brentwood Police Department is being held on Wednesday.

Detective Eric Small of the Sanford Police Department tells WMTW-TV (https://bit.ly/R9uWgB ) that the officers make it a priority to pay their respects whenever a peer dies in the line of duty. Small is part of the honor guard for Sanford and represents the department at funerals.

Arkell was killed last week when he responded to a domestic disturbance call.

Police say 47-year-old Michael Nolan killed Arkell after the officer was invited into the home by Nolan’s 86-year-old father, Walter Nolan. Michael Nolan died in a fire that he set in the house.
