LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

Las Vegas Metro police Officer Charleston Hartfield was laid to rest on Friday. 

Officer Hartfield lost his life while saving others during a mass shooting at the Route 91 Harvest Festival on Oct. 1. 

Before the procession and funeral, the marquees on the Las Vegas Strip displayed tributes to Officer Hartfield.

At 9:15 a.m., a police motorcade escorted the fallen officer and his family from Palm Mortuary on North Main Street to the Central Church located at 1001 New Beginnings Drive in Henderson. 

The funeral service started at 11 a.m and a second procession, lead by a police motorcade, traveled from the church to the graveside service at the Southern Nevada Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Boulder City. 

The graveside service included the traditional rendering of honors, including the presentation of the flag to the family, the playing of the Taps and bagpipes plus a flyover by Metro's Air Support Section. 

Motorists experienced delays in and around the motorcade route, the church, and the graveside.
