PHOENIX — The Phoenix Police Department held a memorial service for Cmdr. Greg Carnicle on Tuesday, three months after he was shot and killed in the line of duty.

The approximately 90-minute service to honor the 31-year veteran of the force started at 9 a.m. at Christ’s Church of the Valley in Peoria.

It was streamed live on the Phoenix Police Department’s Facebook page.

Police were expecting heavy traffic in the area of 67th Avenue and Happy Valley Road until 1 p.m. because of the service and asked the public to use alternate routes.

Carnicle, 56, was shot and killed in the line of duty on March 29 while responding to a domestic violence call.

Two other officers — Marissa Dowhan and Alicia Hubert — also sustained gunshot wounds but survived.

Carnicle was the first commander in the department’s history to be killed on the job and was slated to retire in October.

Due to the coronavirus outbreak and Gov. Doug Ducey’s since-expired stay-at-home order, family-only funeral services were held for Carnicle on April 7 at St. Jerome’s Catholic Church.
