RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC/AP) — Visitation will be held Monday for the Virginia State Police trooper killed by a gunman at the Greyhound bus station in Richmond.
Visitation is scheduled from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. and from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Monday at Liberty Baptist Church in Hampton. The public is invited to attend.
Trooper Chad P. Dermyer’s funeral is planned for 11 a.m. Tuesday at Liberty Baptist. A private graveside burial will immediately follow in Gloucester County.
The procession from the church to Gloucester is as follows:
- Leave church turning left on Big Bethel Road
- Left on Route 134/Magruder Road
- Route 134 merges into Route 17
- Continue straight on Route 17 North to Gloucester County
Authorities say Dermyer was fatally shot by James Brown III of Aurora, Illinois, during a state police training exercise at the bus terminal Thursday. Two other troopers returned fire, killing the 34-year-old Brown.
Two women were wounded by gunfire. Their injuries were not life-threatening.
Since the tragic fatal shooting on Thursday, March 31, there’s been an outpouring of support for Dermyer and his family. Emotional ceremonies have been held in his memory, including a vigil at VCU’s Siegel Center on Friday.
The 37-year-old Dermyer, a Marine veteran, leaves behind a wife, Michelle, and two young children.
