Hundreds attended a funeral service today for a Virginia state trooper killed in the line of duty.

Master Trooper Junius Walker was shot and killed last Thursday on Interstate 85.

Authorities say he was attempting to help the driver of a stopped vehicle when Russell Brown fired on him.

Brown is facing charges of capital murder for Walker's death and charges of attempted capital murder for firing on other officers who responded.

Walker leaves behind a wife, three children and three grandchildren.
