Funeral held for slain Ohio police officer

By  | 

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WTAP) - It was a somber day in Ohio as police officers there buried one of their own.

Hundreds of police cars followed the casket of Justin Leo, 31. Leo was shot and killed last weekend after responding to a domestic call.

Because of the huge crowd expected, the service for Leo was moved to a facility at Youngstown State University.

The service included tributes by his cousins, his minister, and his police chief.

Bagpipes and salutes from his fellow officers accompanied his casket out of the facility.
