DALLAS (AP) — Mourners will gather in Dallas to remember a suburban police officer who was fatally shot while answering a disturbance call at an apartment complex.

A funeral was scheduled Tuesday afternoon for Richardson police Officer David Sherrard (shuh-RARD'). The funeral at Watermark Community Church will be followed by a private graveside service.

Authorities say Sherrard was shot last Wednesday night while entering an apartment. The 37-year-old officer died at a hospital. Police say another man, Rene Gamez, was found shot at the scene and also died.

The suspect, Brandon McCall, eventually surrendered and remains jailed without bond on a charge of capital murder of a peace officer. Investigators are trying to determine what prompted the disturbance.

Sherrard was the first Richardson police officer to die in the line of duty.
