MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Over the next two days, thousands of people are expected to turn out to pay their last respects to the Mendota Heights Police Officer killed in the line of duty nearly a week ago.
Last Wednesday, Officer Scott Patrick was shot and killed during a routine traffic stop in West St. Paul.
On Tuesday, the public is invited to a visitation and Wednesday a private funeral will be held at St. Stephen’s Lutheran Church in West St. Paul.
Starting at 2 p.m. Tuesday, everyone is invited to come down to the church to pay tribute to Patrick. The visitation will go until 8 p.m.
If you go, you’ll want to park at Henry Sibley High School on Delaware Avenue. There will be shuttle buses taking people to and from the church.
On Wednesday morning, the funeral service will start at 11 a.m. However, it’s reserved for only family, friends and the Mendota Heights Police Department.
