A San Diego police officer who was fatally shot in the driver’s seat of his patrol car will be buried today.

Jonathan De Guzman’s burial will follow the second memorial service in two days for the decorated officer, a 16-year-old veteran of the force.

The service at Shadow Mountain Community Church in El Cajon will follow a procession of law enforcement vehicles from San Diego’s Qualcomm Stadium and include aircraft, bagpipes and a 21-gun salute.

De Guzman was a 43-year-old husband and father of two. He died in the shooting July 28 after being struck five times. His partner, 32-year-old Wade Irwin, was shot in the throat but was expected to recover.

A suspect, who was shot by Irwin, has pleaded not guilty to murder and attempted murder.
