Fort Hood victim laid to rest in Missouri

Posted: Updated:

ROLLA, Mo. (AP) - A U.S. Army sergeant killed in last week's shooting in Fort Hood, Texas, has been buried in the Missouri town where he went to high school and met his wife.

Sgt. Timothy Owens was originally from Effingham, Ill. He was one of three soldiers killed April 2 when a gunman fired on the military base. Sixteen others were wounded.

Saturday's funeral was in Rolla, Mo., where Owens lived in the 1990s.

The Rolla Daily News reported that as many as 75 motorcyclists from the Rolla Patriot Guard Riders accompanied the casket before the service at Rolla's First Baptist Church and afterward, to Lake Springs Cemetery in rural Dent County.

As the casket left the church, Patriot Guard Riders, law enforcement officers and residents lined the sidewalk outside and saluted.
