AMERICUS, Ga. (AP) - Funeral services for an Americus police officer killed in the line of duty are planned for Sunday.

Nicholas Ryan Smarr was responding to a domestic dispute Wednesday when he and Georgia Southwestern State University campus policeman Jody Smith were fired on.

The Macon Telegraph (http://bit.ly/2gmnxaC ) reports Smarr's funeral is planned for 2 p.m. Sunday at the Georgia Southwestern State University Storm Dome. Pastor Ricky Smarr and Americus Police Chief Mark Scott are officiating. Burial will follow at Oak Grove Cemetery.

Services are pending for Smith.

Suspected shooter Minguell Lembrick was found dead Thursday from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

    Good Tuesday.  We are all under a WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY and some of us under a WIND CHILL ADVISORY through the day. It will be cold all day with high temperatures only reaching the upper 20s and low 30s.  These high temps will be reached early on at about noon, and then temps will be dropping through the afternoon as a cold front works through.

    CVS to end airbrushing in ads for its beauty products
