NORTH LAS VEGAS, NV (AP) -

Flags are at half-staff in Nevada while plans are made for a funeral for a North Las Vegas police detective who died Saturday of injuries received in an on-duty vehicle crash.

Gov. Brian Sandoval on Wednesday ordered flags lowered through sunset next Tuesday to honor Officer Chad Parque.

A memorial is scheduled  next Tuesday at Central Christian Church in Henderson.

Parque was fatally injured in a three-vehicle crash last Friday involving a wrong-way driver on a busy boulevard while Parque was leaving North Las Vegas Justice Court in a department car.

Parque was 32, a 10-year police veteran, and a husband and father.

He's the third North Las Vegas police officer killed in the line of duty since the department formed in 1946.
