Wednesday funeral for ambushed Riverside officer

RIVERSIDE, Calif. (AP) -- A funeral is scheduled this week for the Riverside Police Department officer who was allegedly shot and killed by fugitive ex-cop Christopher Dorner.

Riverside authorities announced on the department's website that 34-year-old Michael Crain's funeral is set for 10:30 a.m. Wednesday at Grove Community Church. The ceremony will include an Honor Guard procession followed by interment at Riverside National Cemetery.

Crain, a resident of Anaheim and a father of two, was an 11-year veteran of the force.

Authorities say Dorner ambushed Crain and his 27-year-old partner while they were stopped at a red light in Riverside Thursday.

The 27-year-old officer, who was also struck by gunfire, is expected to survive.

SWAT teams continue to search for Dorner, who has vowed revenge against several former LAPD colleagues whom he blames for ending his career.
