LAS VEGAS, NV (KXNT) - Governor Steve Sisolak has ordered that flags be flown at half-staff on Wendesday to honor an NHP Troooper who was killed in the line of duty earlier this year.

Sgt. Ben Jenkins was shot and killed after he pulled over to help who he thought was a stalled driver back on March 20th. The suspect in the shooting was taken into custody a short time later.

Jenkins funeral will be held today in Elko, with a large procession heading out from the funeral home beginning at approximately 9:30am. The Nevada Department of Public Safety will stream the procession live on its Facebook page.
