TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Two Topeka police officers who were shot and killed outside a supermarket will lie in state Friday at the Expocentre, where their funerals will be held Saturday.

Officials announced the arrangements Tuesday for 50-year-old Cpl. David Gogian and 29-year-old Officer Jeff Atherly.

Both were shot Sunday night while investigating possible drug activity in a parking lot. The shooter, 22-year-old David Edward Tiscareno (tih-skuh-REE'-noh), was later killed following an armed standoff at a Topeka home.

The officers' bodies will lie in state at the Expocentre from 1 to 8 p.m. Friday. Guards will be posted overnight.

Gogian's funeral takes place at the Expocentre at 10 a.m. Saturday, followed by a procession to Penwell-Gabel Cemetery. The funeral for Atherly begins at 2 p.m., also followed by a procession to the cemetery.
