Starting at 7 a.m., an entourage will escort Travis County sheriff’s deputy Sgt. Craig Hutchinson’s body from the Cook-Walden Funeral Home at 6100 N. Lamar Blvd. to Shoreline Church, 15201 Burnet Road, where a memorial will be held at 10 a.m.

The entourage taking Hutchinson’s body from the visitation site to the church will not force any road closures, but the convoy could disrupt traffic on its route along Interstate 35 North and Wells Branch Parkway.

Law enforcement officers from across Central Texas will join Sgt. Craig Hutchinson’s family and other loved ones to celebrate the life of the slain Travis County sheriff’s deputy at a service in North Austin on Tuesday.

Authorities say Hutchinson, 54, was fatally shot at his Round Rock home July 25 after encountering burglars.

Portions of North MoPac Boulevard, Parmer Lane and Interstate 35 will be closed about 11:45 a.m. as the procession travels from the church to a graveside service with police honors at Cook-Walden Capital Parks, 14501 N. Interstate 35 in Pflugerville.
