Two MA Police Officers Being Laid to Rest

Two Massachusetts police officers are being laid to rest.

Funerals for Springfield Officer Kevin Ambrose and Rutland Officer Sean Cooney are being held today.

Ambrose was shot and killed while investigating a domestic dispute on Monday. His funeral is at St. Catherine of Siena church in Springfield. Ambrose's pastor from St. Cecilia's Parish in Wilbraham will conduct the service with Springfield Bishop Timothy McDonnell.

Cooney was a part-time officer in Rutland. He died while visiting Indianapolis for the funeral of a friend last week. His death remains under investigation, and his funeral Mass is scheduled for Blessed Sacrament Church in Worcester.
