Funerals for three of the five police officers killed in last week’s sniper attack in Dallas, Texas, are being held Wednesday, with hundreds of law enforcement officials paying their last respects to their fallen comrades.

At the first of the funerals, there was a montage of photos depicting the life of 43-year-old Brent Thompson, an officer for the Dallas rapid transit system, at a Dallas megachurch.
