UPPER MARLBORO, Md. (AP)- A private funeral is scheduled next week for a plainclothes narcotics officer who was killed Sunday in a shootout at a Maryland police station.
    
Authorities say 28-year-old Prince George's County Detective Jacai Colson was killed by one of his fellow officers after a man began firing at a police station in Landover. A wounded suspect, 22-year-old Michael Ford, was arrested.
    
A viewing for Colson will be held Thursday afternoon at a Beltsville funeral home.
    
Another viewing will also be held the next morning at the First Baptist Church of Glenarden in Upper Marlboro, followed by a memorial service.
    
The viewing, memorial service and funeral are all private, per the family's request.
    
Police say Colson, a four-year veteran of the department, grew up in Boothwyn, Pa.
