Procession, funeral held for fallen firefighter

The police situation comes the same day the community said goodbye to Wayne-Westland firefighter Brian Woehlke.

The 29-year-old was killed last week battling a fire at a strip mall on Wayne Road.

He had only been with the department for 10 months -- and was the department's first casualty in the line of duty.

His funeral was held in Dearborn.
