His funeral will be held Monday at Saint George Chaldean Catholic Church in Utica with mass beginning at 10 a.m. Donations for the family can be made to the funeral home.

A Belleville man, 19-year-old Jonathan Cole, has been arrested and charged with second-degree murder in the incident. He's accused of striking Shukur with his vehicle while Shukur was out of his patrol car as he responded to a large crowd gathering at a vigil at McNichols near Stahelin around 2:40 a.m. on August 4.
