Funeral details for Tyler Edenhofer, the Department of Public Safety trooper shot and killed Wednesday along Interstate 10, were confirmed Sunday.

Visitation will begin at 6 p.m. Thursday at Best Funeral Services and Chapel, 9380 W. Peoria Ave. The funeral will be held Friday at 10 a.m. at Christ’s Church of the Valley, 7007 W. Happy Valley Road in Peoria.

Both events are open to the public. 

A candlelight vigil will also be held 7:30 p.m. Monday at the Arizona State Capitol. Gov. Doug Ducey and DPS Director Frank Milstead are expected to speak at 8 p.m.

DPS is asking the public to download a virtual candle app for the vigil, rather than using real flames.

Edenhofer, 24, was shot along I-10 west of Phoenix as troopers attempted to subdue a man who’d reportedly thrown rocks at passing cars.

The man, later identified by police as 20-year-old Isaac D. King, also wounded Trooper Dalin Dorris, officials said. 

Edonhofer served in the Navy before joining DPS in September. He graduated from the Advanced Trooper Academy in May.

King remained in the hospital Sunday as he recovered from injuries sustained during the struggle. It was unclear when he would be released into police custody.
