Watch video: Tampa's fallen officers eulogized; Dontae Morris booked into jail

he funeral service for two slain Tampa police officers drew to a somber close Saturday to the sound of Taps and 21-gun salutes for each patrolman amid an afternoon rain shower.

Police officers from throughout the Tampa Bay area — and some from as far away as California and Minnesota — stood at attention around Idlewild Baptist Church in Lutz after a nearly three-hour service for Officers Jeffrey Kocab and David Curtis.
