SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - Thousands of mourners and law enforcement officials from across the country paid their respects to a Northern California police officer killed in the line of duty.

The San Francisco Chronicle reported Thursday (https://tinyurl.com/mhw4ld9 ) that a solemn motorcade of patrol motorcycles slowly escorted the body of Michael Johnson from a funeral home in suburban Los Gatos, California to a San Jose arena for the memorial services.

The 38-year-old was fatally shot March 24 while responding to reports of a suicidal man with a gun.

Scott Dunham shot Johnson from a second-floor balcony with a high-powered rifle. Another officer shot and killed the 57-year-old Dunham.

Johnson is survived by his wife, parents, grandmother and sister.
