Funeral services will be held Friday for a Tulsa Marine killed in Iraq.

Corporal Jared Shoemaker died in a roadside bomb explosion last week. Shoemaker was also a member of the Tulsa Police Department.

Funeral services will be held at Tulsa’s First United Methodist Church downtown, then Shoemaker’s body will be taken to Floral Haven Cemetery.

The funeral and procession will close several Tulsa streets. Boulder between 10th and 13th will be closed from 7 AM until noon. 129th East Avenue in Broken Arrow will be closed between 11:30 AM until 12:30 PM.

Oklahoma's Blue Star mothers are asking everyone to drive with their headlights on Friday, to show support to Corporal Shoemaker's family.
