The funeral home handling the arrangements says officer Jody Smith will be remembered during a service at Georgia Southwestern State University. Smith was a university police officer. The burial will follow at Howard Johnson Memorial Cemetery.

Smith and Americus police officer Nicholas Smarr were shot last Wednesday while responding to a domestic dispute call. Smarr was buried Sunday.

The suspected gunman was found dead later — apparently of a self-inflicted gunshot wound — inside a home where he was hiding.

Americus is about 140 miles south of Atlanta.
