Funeral services set for Prince George's County Police Officer Jacai Colson

- Funeral services have been set for a 28-year-old Prince George’s County police officer who was killed after being hit by gunfire when a suspect began shooting outside a police station in what was called an unprovoked attack, according to police.

Police said this week that Officer First Class Jacai Colson was fatally wounded by a fellow officer after he was mistaken as a suspect during the incident.
