KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Funeral arrangements are set for an off-duty police officer who was killed in a shooting at a restaurant in Kansas City’s Westport bar and entertainment district.

The services for Officer Thomas Orr will be Thursday morning at Abundant Life Church in Lee’s Summit. Orr was killed and a woman was shot in the arm Sunday on the patio of Californos after an argument broke out between patrons. Orr wasn’t involved in the dispute.

The 30-year-old was a school resource officer for the police department in the Kansas City suburb of Lee’s Summit. Before taking the job with Lee’s Summit in March 2015, Orr had worked for the police department in Marshall, Missouri.

Lee’s Summit Police Sgt. Chris Depue says Orr will be buried in his hometown outside of Chicago.
