Family and friends gathered Friday to remember Jorge Vargas, the Maricopa County Sheriff's detention officer who was shot and killed earlier this month.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio also attended the funeral service, held at St. Vincent de Paul.

Vargas was just 27 years old and had been working as a detention officer for the last 7 years.

He was shot and killed while he was in his driveway, getting ready to leave for his shift. A suspect has not been located and a motive for the killing is unknown.

Vargas leaves behind a wife and 5-year-old son.
