The memorial service for a West Virginia state trooper who died of injuries received in a Clay County shootout last week will take place Wednesday afternoon.
Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin said all U.S. and state flags at state facilities will remain at half-staff until sunset Wednesday in honor of Trooper Eric Michael Workman.
"Joanne and I continue to pray for the friends and family of Trooper Workman and Cpl. Bailey," Gov. Tomblin said. "The loss of these brave men not only reminds us of the dangers faced by our law enforcement officers, but of the sacrifices their families make each and every day. I truly believe both of these West Virginia state troopers will be remembered for their courage; they will be remembered as heroes."
Eyewitness News will broadcast the memorial service live on Fox 11 and on www.wchstv.com. You also can get updates by following us on Twitter @WCHS_WVAH. We'll have complete coverage of the service tonight on Eyewitness News.
