PHOENIX (AP) — A candlelight vigil for a state trooper killed in the line of duty is scheduled on the lawn of the Wesley Bolin Memorial Plaza, 1700 W. Washington St. in Phoenix at 7:30 p.m.

The Department of Public Safety says the event Monday evening honoring Tyler Edenhofer will feature addresses by Gov. Doug Ducey and DPS Col. Frank Milstead.

The 24-year-old Edenhofer was fatally shot Wednesday night along Interstate 10 in Avondale during a struggle involving several troopers and a man suspected of throwing rocks at vehicles.

DPS officials have said Edenhofer was shot with another trooper’s gun by a 20-year-old suspect.

Spokesman Raul Garcia says Isaac King was charged with first-degree murder Sunday.
