A group of Boise police met a number of other officers from the Treasure Valley this morning so they could depart together to Coeur d'Alene. That's where they'll join law enforcement from throughout the Northwest to participate in the Saturday, May 9 memorial service for a fellow peace officer.

Sgt. Greg Moore, a 16-year-veteran of the Coeur d'Alene Police Department, will be laid to rest Saturday following a memorial service at the Lake City High School in Coeur d'Alene. The funeral will be televised live from Spokane's KREM-TV.

Moore, 43, was shot May 5 while on patrol. Jonathan Renfro, 26, of Rathdrum, has admitted to the shooting, according to court records.

Kootenai County prosecutors on May 7 filed an amended complaint of first-degree murder against Renfro. He had initially been charged with attempted murder after the Tuesday morning shooting in a Coeur d'Alene neighborhood, but Moore died later that day. Renfro is being held on a $2 million bond.

Meanwhile, this morning's Coeur d'Alene Press reports that hundreds of citizens lined Interstate 90 on Thursday as a procession of emergency vehicles escorted Moore's body from Spokane, where an autopsy had been performed, back to Coeur d'Alene's English Funeral Chapel.
