The city of Baton Rouge will continue to memorialize officers slain in a shoot-out outside a convenience store just a week ago with funeral services planned Monday for police officer Montrell Jackson.

Just days before he was shot and killed, Jackson posted an emotional Facebook message saying he was "physically and emotionally" tired and expressing how difficult it was to be both a police officer and a black man.

All 1,500 seats were filled in Istrouma Baptist Church Saturday, where a public funeral was held for Baton Rouge sheriff's deputy Brad Garafola, 45.

On Friday, hundreds turned out for a funeral service for police officers Matthew Gerald, 41.

A multi-agency memorial service for the three officers is planned for Thursday.
