CINCINNATI (AP) - Authorities in Cincinnati are preparing for thousands of people to turn out for services this week to honor a police officer killed in a shootout with a suspect.

A police union spokesman says officers from nearly every state are expected to attend, with hundreds of police cruisers and motorcycles coming to the city for services for officer Sonny Kim.

There will be a visitation beginning Thursday at 2 p.m. at Xavier University’s Cintas (SIN’-tahs) Center, with a private Fraternal Order of Police service there Thursday night.

The funeral will start at 11 a.m. Friday, followed by a private burial service.

Police say the 27-year veteran Kim was killed last Friday by an armed suspect who had made 911 calls and was seeking “suicide by cop.” He was killed by police.
