SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - Police from across the state and the nation will remember a fallen Northern California police officer during a public memorial service that is expected to draw thousands.

KNTV reports (https://bit.ly/1FlllYR) Thursday that the service will start with a procession in Los Gatos, California before arriving at an arena in San Jose for the 11 a.m. service. Top state officials, including California Attorney General Kamala Harris, are expected to attend.

San Jose police Officer Michael Johnson was gunned down March 24 when responding to a call for an armed and suicidal man. Scott Dunham was shot and killed by a fellow lawman after he fired the fatal shot that killed Johnson.

The California Highway Patrol will use 45 motorcycle officers to guide the procession. CHP Spokesman Ross Lee said motorists and residents should expect street closures during the ceremony.
