ANTIOCH, Ill. (AP) – Hundreds of law enforcement officers including representatives from Marseilles, Streator and Ottawa attended the funeral of a suburban Chicago police officer who was fatally shot last week.

Friends, family and peers of Fox Lake police Lt. Charles Joseph Gliniewicz were at the service Monday at Antioch High School. The 52-year-old Gliniewicz was shot last Tuesday while chasing three suspicious men on foot in a marshy area of Fox Lake. He was a married father of four and a 30-year veteran of the department.

Police are still searching for the men involved in the shooting.
