RIVERSIDE, Calif. -

A throng of uniformed law enforcement officers gathered to mourn a Riverside officer gunned down a week ago during an alleged revenge rampage by ex-Los Angeles policeman Christopher Dorner.

The flag-draped coffin of Officer Michael Crain was carried into Grove Community Church to the sound of bagpipes this morning.

Crain was ambushed in his patrol car on February 7.

Dorner's believed to have died in a burning cabin in the San Bernardino Mountains yesterday after a shootout that killed a sheriff's deputy. He's also suspected of shooting an Irvine couple.
