FRESNO COUNTY, Calif. (KMPH) -

Police and sheriff's deputies from local agencies on Thursday joined hundreds of uniformed law enforcement officials from across the state in Riverside to mourn a slain officer.

Two Selma officers and two Fresno County Sheriff's deputies were in attendance for the funeral of officer Michael Crain, a Riverside officer who was gunned down on Feb. 7 while in his patrol car in an alleged revenge rampage by ex-Los Angeles policeman Christopher Dorner.

Crain's flag-draped coffin was carried into Grove Community Church to the sound of bagpipes this morning, officers said.

Dorner's believed to have died in a burning cabin in the San Bernardino Mountains on Tuesday after a shootout that killed a sheriff's deputy. He's also suspected of shooting an Irvine couple.
