SEASIDE, Ore. (AP) - A memorial service has been scheduled for Sgt. Jason Goodding, the Seaside police officer killed while trying to make an arrest.

The service will be held at 1 p.m. Friday in the Seaside Convention Center. The public is invited to attend.

Meanwhile, about 1,500 people gathered Sunday night for a candlelight vigil in Goodding’s honor. Residents have also been paying their respects at memorials in downtown Seaside and the police station.

Police say Goodding was fatally shot late Friday by Phillip Ferry, who was being arrested on a warrant for felony assault. Another Seaside officer returned fire, killing Ferry.

The suspect had a lengthy criminal record and was charged with assaulting officers and resisting arrest on several previous occasions.
