AURORA, Colo. (AP) – More services are being held for people killed in the Colorado theater shootings.

More than 1,000 people including Gov. John Hickenlooper and Aurora police officers attended a funeral Friday in Aurora for Alexander “A.J.” Boik. The recent high school graduate was set to start attending the Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design.

A private memorial service also is planned Friday night for former Air Force linguist Rebecca Wingo followed by a public celebration of her life at the Denver bar where she went every week. Friends say Wingo balanced work, school and raising her two daughters.
