Private funeral to be held for slain OPP Const. Marc Hovingh on Saturday

·1 min read

TORONTO — A funeral service is to be held on Saturday for an Ontario Provincial Police officer who was killed in the line of duty. 

Const. Marc Hovingh died Thursday in a shooting on Manitoulin Island that also resulted in the death of a civilian.   

The Ontario Provincial Police Association says the private service is to be livestreamed.  

Hovingh, a 28-year veteran of the force, is survived by his wife Lianne and children Laura, Nathan, Elena and Sarah.  

Hovingh, who was 52, was one of the officers who responded to a call Thursday regarding an "unwanted man'' on a property in Gore Bay, Ont., on Manitoulin Island.   

According to the Special Investigations Unit -- Ontario's police watchdog -- Hovingh and civilian Gary Brohman died in hospital after an exchange of gunfire.
