Funeral Set For Phoenix Police Commander Killed By Suspect

Phoenix Police Department

Funeral services for a Phoenix police commander killed in the line of duty will take place next week.

The Phoenix Police Department announced that a funeral Mass for Commander Greg Carnicle is planned for Tuesday with only immediate family present. Authorities say the service at St. Jerome’s Catholic Church in Phoenix will be limited because of the coronavirus pandemic. The department plans to livestream the 10 a.m. memorial on Facebook.

Carnicle, a 31-year police veteran who was set to retire, and two other officers were shot Sunday night while answering a call about a roommate dispute.

The suspect was shot dead during the incident in north Phoenix.

The other wounded officers are expected to recover.
