ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Funeral services have been held for an Albuquerque police officer who died from a medical issue during a training exercise.

John Kelly was laid to rest Thursday a week after he was stricken by a heart attack.

The 36-year-old Kelly was a detective and a field training officer and had been with the Albuquerque Police Department since 2006.

He was stricken as he and others gathered at a location in northeast Albuquerque for role-playing training on how to interact with people in crisis.

The former Army veteran is survived by his wife, three children and three stepchildren.
