Flags ordered lowered for West Michigan officer

U.S. flags in Michigan will be lowered in honor of a Walker police officer who was struck and killed by two fleeing bank robbers. Gov. Rick Snyder ordered the flag lowering for Friday, the day of Trevor Slot's funeral. The 41-year-old from Grand Rapids was killed last Thursday while laying down spike strips to stop a speeding sport utility vehicle on Interstate 96 in Ottawa County. Visitation was today and Thursday at the Third Reformed Church in Grand Rapids. Funeral services will be Friday at the Resurrection Life Church in Grandville.
