Funeral arrangements have been made for Jeremiah MacKay, the San Bernardino Bernardino County Sheriff's deputy who was killed pursuing Christopher Dorner.

The funeral will be at 11 a.m. on Thursday at the San Manuel Amphitheater, 2575 Glen Helen Parkway. There will also be a viewing Wednesday for friends and family.

A candlelight vigil is also planned for 6 p.m. Tuesday at the sheriff's station in Yucaipa, where MacKay was stationed. The vigil is public and will be at 34282 Yucaipa Blvd.

MacKay, a 35-year-old father of two, was killed Tuesday in the San Bernardino Mountains while pursuing Dorner, a former Los Angeles police officer who is suspected of killing two people in Irvine, then a Riverside police officer and MacKay. Dorner was found dead in a burning cabin in the Barton Flats area after a shootout with authorities. This report has been corrected to indicate that MacKay's funeral will be Thursday at 11 a.m.
