A memorial service is scheduled for a Florida police K-9 killed in the line of duty during a Christmas Eve shooting.
The Palm Beach Post reports that the public service will be held Thursday morning at the Coral Sky Amphitheatre in suburban West Palm Beach.
A Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman says Cigo will be honored in the same manner traditionally afforded deputies who are killed on the job. That includes a police motorcade that will deliver Cigo's body to the service, a 21-gun salute and an "End of Watch Call." Cigo will also receive a police medal of honor.
Cigo was fatally shot at the Wellington Green Mall, where deputies tracked two suspects wanted for attempted first-degree murder. One suspect opened fire, striking the dog.
