REDFORD TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) -

Hundreds of officers from Texas and across Michigan gathered in suburban Detroit for a funeral for Michael Krol, who was among five officers killed this month in Dallas.

A large U.S. flag hung from fire trucks in Macomb County's Redford Township as mourners arrived Tuesday at St. Robert Bellarmine Catholic Church.

The Michigan native moved to Dallas to become an officer. Another funeral was held for the 40-year-old officer in Texas on Friday.

Detroit Officer Derrick Knox tells The Detroit News that Krol "died doing what he loved to do and what was on his heart, which was to protect and serve others."

Krol was among five officers killed by a gunman during a march to protest recent fatal police shootings of black men in Minnesota and Louisiana.
