MARYVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Services are set for a Tennessee police officer who was fatally shot last week.

The city of Maryville says in a news release that the funeral for 32-year-old Maryville Officer Kenny Moats will be held at 7 p.m. Tuesday at Sevier Heights Baptist Church in Knoxville. A visitation at the church will be held starting at 4 p.m.

Moats was shot in the neck just above his bullet-proof vest while taking cover behind his vehicle Thursday outside a Maryville home. A suspect is charged with criminal homicide and aggravated assault.
