Local police to attend slain officer's funeral
Nearly half of Woodbury's police force will attend the funeral service today for slain North St. Paul cop Richard Crittenden.
Crittenden was responding to a domestic call Monday morning when he was fatally shot with his own gun during a physical struggle with a man in an apartment. A Maplewood officer assisting on the call then fatally shot the suspect. That officer suffered a gunshot wound to the arm during an exchange of gunfire with the suspect.
