A Massachusetts community is paying its final respects to a police officer who was fatally shot during a traffic stop.
A wake for Auburn Officer Ronald Tarentino Jr. is scheduled for Thursday at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Charlton.
A funeral Mass is planned for Friday morning at St. Joseph, followed by burial at Greenville Baptist Church Cemetery in Tarentino's hometown of Leicester.
The 42-year-old was shot in the back during a traffic stop early Sunday morning by a man with a long criminal history. The suspect was later killed during an exchange of gunfire with police.
Tarentino was the son of a longtime Medford officer and an avid outdoorsman. He's survived by his wife and three sons.
