    A public visitation for slain Richardson Police Officer David Sherrard will be held Monday night.

    The public visitation will be held at First Baptist Richardson, at 1001 North Central Expressway, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

    After the visitation, Sherrard's body will be moved to Watermark Community Church in Dallas in preparation for Tuesday's funeral. Though the funeral is private, it will be available online.

    Sherrard was fatally shot Wednesday as he responded to a disturbance call at a Richardson apartment complex. Brandon McCall has been arrested in connection with the double-shooting that also killed his friend

    Police Chief Jimmy Spivey was among a group of speakers at a vigil Sunday night. Spivey told the crowd the days since the shooting that killed Sherrard have been the darkest in the history of the department. 

    “We have lost an amazing part of our police department: a leader, the guy who picked us up, the guy who carried us,” said Spivey. “We will never replace David Sherrard.” 

    Funeral services for Sherrard are set for Tuesday at 2 p.m. at Watermark Community Church in Dallas.
