GALT, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say the public is invited to attend funeral services for a Galt police officer who was shot and killed in the line of duty earlier this week.

Officials say the funeral for Kevin Tonn is set to begin at 11:00 a.m. Monday at the Adventure Christian Church in Roseville.

Following the services at the church, a funeral procession to Sierra Hills Memorial Park & East Lawn Mortuary is planned.

After the procession and graveside service, there will be a reception held at the Citrus Heights Community Center.

Tonn was shot when he went to question a possible suspect who fit the description of a burglar police were looking for a little before noon Wednesday.

Authorities say the gunman — 30-year-old Humphrey Kenneth Gascon Jr. — then shot and killed himself.

Galt police say the 35-year-old Tonn was a 3 1/2-year veteran of the department.
