Columbus, Ohio (AP) -- Hundreds have turned out on the Ohio State University campus to show support during the burial procession of an employee gunned down by a subordinate.

Forty-eight-year-old building services manager Larry Wallington was killed early last Tuesday in a university maintenance building by a janitor about to be fired.

Nathaniel Brown also shot and wounded another of his bosses before taking his own life.

Wallington's funeral was Sunday.

For Monday's procession, Ohio State had encouraged students, faculty and others to line the route, and the crowd stood three deep in spots.

The hearse wound through campus on its way to the cemetery, passing by two sites the university said Wallington loved: The Fisher College of Business and Ohio Stadium.
