    A large U.S. flag hung from the ladders of two fire trucks as hundreds of mourners gathered for the funeral of Michael Krol, a Michigan native who moved to Dallas to become a police officer.

    Law enforcement personnel from across the country attended the service Friday at Prestonwood Baptist Church in the Dallas suburb of Plano to honor the 40-year-old Krol.

    He was one of the five officers killed last week by a lone gunman during a march to protest recent fatal shootings of black men in Minnesota and Louisiana by police.

    Krol's mother said in a statement that he was a caring person who wanted to help others.

    Funerals for three of the officers were held earlier this week. A funeral for Patrick Zamarripa is scheduled for Saturday.
