BOZEMAN, Mont. (AP) - Hundreds of law enforcement officers from Montana and surrounding states are expected to attend a memorial service for a sheriff’s deputy who was killed in the line of duty.

Gallatin County officials say the funeral for Broadwater County Deputy Mason Moore will be held at the Bridge Church in Belgrade at 11 a.m. Tuesday. It will be live-streamed to the Belgrade Events Center and the Three Forks High School gym as well as online.

A procession will escort Deputy Moore’s body through Townsend to Belgrade, starting at 8:30 a.m.

Moore was shot early on May 16. The suspected shooter was fatally wounded near Missoula after a pursuit on Interstate 90. The shooter’s father is charged with accountability to deliberate homicide in Moore’s death. He also faces more than a dozen counts of attempted deliberate homicide for shots fired at other officers during the pursuit.
