OGDEN, Utah — A Utah police officer killed in a gunbattle last week with a suspected pot grower has been buried in a tear-filled ceremony that featured a 21-gun salute and the release of about a dozen white doves into the bright blue winter sky.
The burial Wednesday of undercover police officer Jared Francom at the Ogden City Cemetery also included the playing of Taps and a police dispatcher's broadcast of a final radio call.
Afterward, uniformed officers streamed pasted Francom's casket, some leaving behind their white gloves.
Francom was killed after police tried to serve a search warrant on Jan. 4. Five others from the Weber-Morgan Narcotics Task Force were injured. Three remained hospitalized Wednesday in fair condition.
Suspect Matthew David Stewart was cornered in a backyard shed before he was shot and wounded by police.
