LAS VEGAS (AP) _ A slain Las Vegas police officer has been eulogized as a delighted new father, dedicated law enforcer, voracious reader and hero to the community he protected before he was killed on Sunday.

Igor Soldo's brother, a police officer in Beatrice, Nebraska, was among those who remembered Soldo's serious side and his pranks Thursday during a full-honors funeral for the 31-year-old officer.

Robert Soldo remembered their lives in Bosnia before moving to Nebraska, where both went into law enforcement. He says Igor would have appreciated seeing the 3,000 uniformed officers, family members and friends who turned out for his funeral.

Igor Soldo and Officer Alyn Beck were shot dead at a pizza shop by a couple that police said also killed a shopper at a nearby Wal-Mart store before they were killed.
