Funeral for slain Georgia officer at college where he worked

A funeral for the second of two south Georgia police officers killed last week will take place Wednesday.

The funeral home handling the arrangements says officer Jody Smith will be remembered during a service at Georgia Southwestern State University.

Smith was a university police officer. The burial will follow at Howard Johnson Memorial Cemetery.

Smith and an Americus police officer, Nicholas Smarr, were shot last Wednesday responding to a domestic dispute call. Smarr was buried Sunday.

The suspected gunman was found dead later — apparently of a self-inflicted gunshot wound — inside a home where he was hiding.

Americus is about 140 miles south of Atlanta.
