Funeral For Cold Spring Police Officer Wednesday
The Patriot Guard Riders hold flags as police officers from around Minn. and surrounding states march into St. John's Abbey for the funeral service of Cold Spring Police Officer Tom Decker.

State officials estimate several thousand people are attending a funeral service for slain Cold Spring police officer Tom Decker.

The Minnesota Department of Public Safety says the estimated 3,200 people at St. John's Abbey and University Church in Collegeville include about 2,300 law enforcement officers from around the U.S. and Canada.

Funeral spokesman Doug Neville said that squad cars were spotted from as far away as Chicago, Ontario, and the state of Montana.

The 31-year-old officer was fatally shot Thursday when he was called to check on a man's welfare. No charges have been filed in his death. Officers saluted Decker's hearse as it arrived at the church Wednesday morning.

After the service, a procession of officers will escort his casket through the community Decker served and to St. Nicholas Catholic Cemetery in Luxemburg where he will be buried.
