Funeral services held for slain Va Tech police officer

(CNN) -- Funeral services were held Monday for the Virginia Tech police officer killed on campus last week.

Officer Deriek Crouse died when a man walked up to his patrol car and shot him during a routine traffic stop last Thursday.

Investigators say the shooter was 22-year-old Ross Ashley, who killed himself a short time later.

According to the Virginia Tech website, Crouse joined the campus police force 6 months after the 2007 mass shooting.

The 39-year old is survived by his wife and 5 children and stepchildren.
