DAYTON — UPDATE @ 5:20 p.m. (Nov. 7): Services, including a public visitation, have been set for Dayton Police Det. Jorge Del Rio, who died Thursday after he was shot Monday night in the line of duty.
A public visitation will be held at the University of Dayton Arena on Monday, from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m.
His funeral will also be at UD Arena on Tuesday beginning at noon. The final salute will be after the funeral, in the arena parking lot. There will be no graveside service.
A procession of marked and unmarked law enforcement vehicles will accompany the detective’s body back to the funeral home following the funeral and final salute.
