Police ID suspect in 4 SC officers' wounding
Monday simply outside York County, South Carolina , the York County Sheriff's Office said at a news meeting today. Another deputy quickly transported the wounded K-9 officer to a local hospital in the back of his patrol vehicle.

Many of those waiting carried yellow flowers such as daffodils, which they said represented sunshine.

Lead singer Dolores O'Riordan's lyrics were punctuated by a voice that was equal parts power, indignation, tenderness and liberation.

A floral tribute beside her open coffin read: "The song has ended, but the memories linger on". The religious O'Riordan wore black and held two pearl rosary beads.

As the church has a limited capacity of only 200 places, attendance is strictly reserved for extended family and close friends. She'll be buried next to her father, Terry, who died in 2011.

However, The Metropolitan Police have announced that the singer's death "is not being treated as suspicious".
