Funeral of Slain Fargo Officer To Include 21-Mile Procession
FARGO, N.D. (AP) - The funeral of a Fargo police officer who was shot and killed while responding to a domestic disturbance is scheduled to be followed by a 21-mile procession through the Fargo metropolitan area.
Services for 33-year-old Jason Moszer are scheduled Monday afternoon at Scheels Arena in southwest Fargo. The six-year veteran of the force died of a single gunshot wound during a standoff at a house near downtown Fargo. He leaves behind a wife and two children.
Authorities say hundreds of law enforcement officers are expected at the arena, which seats up to 6,000 people. The procession of officers and first responders will weave through Fargo, West Fargo and Moorhead, Minnesota.
Moszer is the first Fargo officer to die in the line of duty in more than 130 years.
