Details about the memorial services for three Pittsburgh police officers, who were fatally shot on Saturday morning, should be released later today. Officers Eric Kelly, Paul Sciullo, and Stephen Mayhle were all killed after they responded to a domestic disturbance at 1016 Fairfield Street.

Police Chief Nate Harper says the department is taking the murder of the three officers very hard. Harper also says arresting officers showed restraint when they took Richard Poplawski into custody after he surrendered. Poplawski faces numerous charges including three counts of homicide. The shooting is being called the worst shooting in Pittsburgh Police history.
