RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Funeral services are being held for a Virginia State Police special agent who died in the line of duty.

Funeral services are being held Saturday afternoon at Powhatan High School for Special Agent Michael Walter. The 45-year-old father of three was an 18-year veteran of Virginia State Police who previously served in the Marines.

Walter was shot after he and a Richmond police officer walked up to a car in Richmond on May 26. The driver of the car told authorities he “observed a scuffle” between Walter and the car’s passenger Travis Ball before Walter was shot. The 27-year-old Ball fled the scene and was arrested after a manhunt. He’s now facing charges in Walter’s death.
