Funeral scheduled Tuesday for slain Tennessee deputy
DICKSON, Tenn. (AP) — Services are set this week for a Tennessee sheriff’s sergeant who was fatally shot while responding to a call.
According to Taylor Funeral Home in Dickson, Sgt. Daniel Baker’s funeral will be at 1 p.m. Tuesday at First Baptist Church in Dickson. Visitation will be on Monday.
The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation says the 32-year-old Baker was found dead in his patrol car Wednesday after responding to a call about a suspicious vehicle.
Two suspects were arrested last week in Baker’s death. A district attorney says the state of Tennessee will seek the death penalty against them.
Dickson is about 40 miles west of Nashville.
