Bagpipes played and officers saluted the hearse carrying Guindon’s body as it pulled up to the church.

Guindon was one of three officers shot Saturday responding to a domestic violence call. The other two officers are expected to survive.

A suspect, Ronald Hamilton, is jailed facing a capital murder charge and other counts.

Hamilton’s wife, Crystal Hamilton, was shot and killed Saturday before police arrived.
