Hundreds of mourners paid tribute to a young Missouri police officer killed in the line of duty.

WDAF-TV reports that loved ones and fellow officers were among the many people in attendance Monday for the funeral of 30-year-old Clinton officer Ryan Morton.

Morton and two other officers were wounded March 6 after they were sent to the wrong house while responding to a 911 call made from another town. The suspect, James Waters, then barricaded himself inside the home. By the time officers got to Morton hours later, he was dead, along with Waters, who had a long criminal history.
