The hearse carrying the body of El Paso County sheriff deputy Micah Flick, 34, as part of the police procession that progressed down South Nevada Ave., on Monday February 5, 2018 in Colorado Springs. This was Flick's 11th anniversary today with the sheriff's office and he is survived by his wife and seven-year-old twins.

The funeral procession Saturday for slain El Paso County sheriff's Deputy Micah Flick will travel south on Powers Boulevard and east on Woodmen Road to Meridian Road. From there, the family will proceed to the cemetery for a private burial service, the Sheriff's Office said.

Thousands of people, including law enforcement, military and first responders, are expected to attend the funeral at 1 p.m. at New Life Church, 11025 Voyager Parkway.

Flick was fatally shot Monday in a gunbattle during an attempted auto-theft arrest in the parking lot of an east Colorado Springs apartment complex. Two sheriff's deputies, a police detective and a passer-by were injured. The suspected car thief also was killed.

Following the funeral, hundreds of vehicles are expected to accompany the hearse. Roads are expected to be shut down for the procession so expect delays along the route.
