Photos: Hundreds celebrate the life of Patrick O'Rourke

Posted: Updated:
WEST BLOOMFIELD TOWNSHIP, Mich. (MyFox Detroit) -

Take a look at photos from this past week that include Friday's funeral service for fallen West Bloomfield Twp. Officer Patrick O'Rourke.

Authorities say a former auto executive who was facing business and family troubles fired on police responding to a call at his home on Sunday night, killing O'Rourke and sparking a 20-hour siege that ended with the suspect dead amid a weapons-strewn bedroom.

O'Rourke, a married father of four, was a 12-year veteran officer.

An education, health and welfare fund has been setup for the family of Officer O'Rourke. You can make a donation at any Bank of America branch. There is now also a website that has now been created. It's www.WestBloomfieldHero.com.

Elton Black & Son Funeral Home is offering mourners a chance to write and record their condolences. Click here to learn more.
