Viewing being held for officer Jacai Colson who was killed in line of duty

- (AP) -- A viewing is being held for a plainclothes narcotics officer who was killed in a shootout at a Maryland police station.

Prince George's County Detective Jacai Colson was killed March 13 by one of his fellow officers after a man began firing at a police station in Landover. A wounded suspect, 22-year-old Michael Ford, was arrested and now faces more than two dozen charges including second-degree murder.
