ATLANTA (AP) - Funeral arrangements have been announced for a metro Atlanta police officer gunned down after a traffic stop.

News outlets report the family of 24-year-old DeKalb County officer Edgar Isidro Flores has scheduled visitation at a funeral home Sunday and Monday evenings, followed by a funeral service Tuesday at All Saints Catholic Church in Dunwoody. A second service is planned for Wednesday at Prince of Peace Catholic Church in Flowery Branch.

Police say Flores was shot multiple times Thursday by a man who fled a traffic stop. The Georgia Bureau of Investigation says the gunman, 33-year-old Brandon Taylor, also shot and wounded a police dog used to track him before the suspect was killed by SWAT officers.

Flores had been hired by the suburban police force in May 2017.
