The body of Michael Krol, a Michigan native and one of five Dallas Police officers killed in an attack last week, was flown back home to Michigan on Saturday night.

A motorcade arrived at the funeral home in Redford Township on Saturday night, making its way from Detroit Metro Airport.

Visitation for Krol will happen at Harry Will Funeral Home on Plymouth Rd. from 1 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Monday, July 18.

Krol's funeral will take place on Tuesday, July 19 at St. Robert Bellarmine Catholic Church on W. Chicago in Redford beginning at 11 a.m.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to Assist the Officer or the National Association of Police/Activities League.

Krol was an officer with the Dallas Police Department for 9 years, according to his mom, after leaving Michigan. He also worked in the Wayne County Jail as a member of the Wayne County Sheriff's Department.
