The funeral procession for federal courthouse security officer Stanley Cooper made its way onto the grounds of the Central Christian Church this afternoon.
A flag draped casket rode in the rear of a Las Vegas Police truck, which followed dozens of police motorcycles in the motorcade.
Cooper, 72, was shot and killed Jan. 4 while working as a security guard at the Lloyd D. George Federal Courthouse in downtown Las Vegas. His killer, Johnny Lee Wicks, was himself killed in a shootout.
Cooper retired as a sergeant after 26 years with Las Vegas police. He began work with the U.S. Marshals Service in 1994.
He is survived by a brother, four sons, a daughter, seven grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
