Memorial, funeral set for slain DeKalb County officer

TUCKER, Ga. (AP) - DeKalb County police say a memorial service and funeral for a fallen officer is set for later this week.

In a release, department spokeswoman Mekka Parish said Tuesday that Officer Ivorie Klusmann's public visitation will be held Thursday between noon and 8 p.m. at Levitt's Funeral home in Decatur.

Authorities have said Klusmann was killed in a traffic accident Saturday while he and other officers were pursuing a man who fled a traffic stop. Police have said Klusmann's car hit a tree.

The officer's funeral is set for 11 a.m. on Friday at New Birth Missionary Baptist Church in Lithonia. Attendees are asked to arrive by at least 10:30 a.m.
