Hundreds honor detective killed in Dorner standoff

YUCAIPA, Calif. (AP) -- Hundreds of mourners braved cold, hard rain at a candlelight vigil for a San Bernardino County sheriff's detective shot and killed in the final standoff with fugitive ex-police officer Christopher Dorner.

The Riverside Press-Enterprise (http://bit.ly/154lVI0) reports few candles were snuffed by the rain as people paid tribute to 35-year-old Detective Jeremiah MacKay in Yucaipa.

MacKay's father wore a sweatshirt with the family crest and spoke about the “full force” his son used in everything he did.

Other mourners included Sheriff John McMahon, MacKay's widow and scores of deputies and detectives.

Bagpipes _ an instrument MacKay played at funerals _ provided the music.

Authorities say MacKay became the fourth person killed by Dorner on Feb. 12 outside a cabin that would soon go up in flames. Dorner's remains were found inside.
