(Harrisburg) -- A motorcade is underway in the midstate, headed toward a memorial service to honor a deputy U.S. marshal who died in the line of duty two weeks ago.

Vehicles were driving to the public memorial service Thursday afternoon for Deputy U.S. Marshal Christopher David Hill at the Giant Center in Hershey.

Mourners are lining the route, and a large American flag has been hoisted above a bridge along the way.

The 45-year-old Hill was shot and killed Jan. 18 while serving a warrant when a man wanted in Philadelphia opened fire in a Harrisburg home, killing Hill and wounding another officer.

The wanted man was himself shot and killed by police.

Hill is a native of Sacramento, California, and attended Warrior Run High School in central Pennsylvania.
