Funeral service planned for slain MIT officer
STONEHAM, Mass. (AP) -- Family, friends and colleagues are paying their final respects to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology police officer who authorities say was killed by the Boston Marathon bombing suspects.
A private funeral Mass for Sean Collier is scheduled for Tuesday at St. Patrick's Church in Stoneham.
A memorial service open to law enforcement and the MIT community only is scheduled for Wednesday on MIT's campus. Vice President Joe Biden is expected to attend.
The 27-year-old Collier was shot multiple times as he sat in his vehicle last Thursday.
He had worked for the MIT police for a little over a year and had been offered a job with the Somerville Police Department.
He was a Wilmington native and a graduate of Salem State University.
He is survived by his parents and five siblings.
