Officers in dress uniforms stood at attention as a hearse bearing the remains of Officer Brian Mulkeen arrived at a church in Monroe, New York, on Friday.

Bagpipers marched silently to the beat of a somber drum.

The white-gloved officers crisply saluted as Mulkeen's flag-draped casket was carried into the church.

Mulkeen was working with a plainclothes anti-crime unit when he and his partners encountered the armed man on Sunday.
