KOKOMO, Ind. (AP) — Police motorcycle officers and squad cars have escorted the casket of a slain central Indiana sheriff's deputy to a high school where two days of memorial services are planned.

Officers in dress uniform carried the flag-draped casket of Howard County Deputy Carl Koontz into Northwestern High School near Kokomo after a procession from a funeral home Monday morning.

Visitation for Koontz is scheduled to begin at 1 p.m. Monday at the high school where he was assigned part-time for the past two years. Organizers expect hundreds of police officers to attend the 27-year-old deputy's funeral on Tuesday at the school.

Police say Koontz was shot during a gunfight March 20 inside a mobile home in Russiaville after which the gunman killed himself.

Koontz was married with an 8-month-old son.
