Mpls officer Duy Ngo to be laid to rest Monday

Funeral services were held Monday morning in St. Paul for a Minneapolis police officer who died a week ago.

Officer Duy Ngo died from an apparent suicide on June 7. It's not yet clear why he apparently took his own life.

Ngo's funeral was at the Cathedral of St. Paul, with internment at Resurrection Cemetery.

The 37-year-old Ngo had been in the media after he was severely injured in 2003 when he was shot several times by a colleague while working undercover. He later won a $4.5 million settlement from the city. It was the city's largest settlement involving a Minneapolis police officer.

Ngo, of Mendota Heights, is survived by his wife, daughter, and many other relatives and friends.
