CHICAGO (WLS) --
Thousands have gathered Friday morning for the funeral for one of the two police officers hit and killed by a train Monday night.

The funeral for Chicago Police Officer Conrad Gary is set to get underway at 9:30 a.m. at St. Rita and thousands of his brothers and sisters in blue will pay their final respects.

Hundreds of people waited in line for hours Thursday night at Blake Lamb funeral home for the visitation of Officer Conrad Gary. The 31-year-old Oak Lawn native leaves behind a wife and infant daughter. He was on the police force for only 18 months.

Officer Gary's casket will be draped in an American flag to honor his service in the U.S. Air Force.

Monday night, Gary and his partner Officer Eduardo Marmolejo were looking for an armed man when they were struck and killed by a commuter train near 103rd Street and Cottage Grove Avenue.
