Funeral mass to be held for Cleveland officer who was killed


CLEVELAND (AP) — Hundreds of police officers have gathered at a church where a funeral mass is being held to honor a Cleveland police officer killed in the line of duty.

Police say Patrolman David Fahey was setting down flares Tuesday to close the westbound lanes of Interstate 90 after an earlier fatal accident when he was struck.

A $500,000 bond has been set for the driver who’s charged with aggravated vehicular homicide and failing to stop after a fatal accident in Fahey’s death.

Saturday’s mass was scheduled for Our Lady of Angels Church in Cleveland.

Gov. John Kasich (KAY’-sik) has ordered U.S. and Ohio flags to be flown at half-staff on all public buildings and grounds in Cuyahoga (ky-uh-HOH’-guh) County and at the Ohio Statehouse on Saturday in honor of Fahey.
