FRESNO, Calif. (AP) - The memorial service is underway for two California Highway Patrol officers killed while responding to a crash south of Fresno.

With hundreds of people watching from the stands at Fresno's Save Mart Center, a four-member CHP color guard accompanied by bagpipes marched into the arena on Monday morning and stood before the caskets of officers Brian Law and Juan Gonzalez.

CHP Commissioner Joseph Farrow told the crowd it was a day of mourning for the entire state.

The 34-year-old Law and 33-year-old Gonzalez died on Feb. 17 while they were in the same patrol car heading south on state Route 99 toward a pre-dawn crash in Kingsburg.       

The two officers will be buried in separate funeral services following the memorial.
