PITTSBURGH (AP) - Funeral arrangements have been set for three slain Pittsburgh police officers.

Their bodies will lie in state at a downtown municipal building beginning Wednesday afternoon, and a memorial service will be held Thursday at an arena on the University of Pittsburgh Campus.

Richard Poplawski, 23, is accused of shooting the officers when they responded to a fight between the gunman and his mother Saturday morning.

Thursday's memorial will also serve as the funeral service for Officer Eric Kelly, 41, who will be buried immediately afterward.

Separate funeral services are set for the other officers, Stephen Mayhle and Paul Sciullo II.
