Sunday night family and friends will gather to remember Sgt. First Class Michael Braden who was shot and killed at the Tennessee Army National Guard.

The 45-year-old was working at the armory in Lobelville, Tenn. when investigators say Christopher Farrar, 15, opened fire last Wednesday.

SFC Braden was struck at least once and transported to a nearby hospital where he died a short time later.

Farrar was charged with criminal homicide in his death.

The visitation for SFC Braden is scheduled for 5 until 8 p.m. at the Garner Funeral Home chapel in Ripley, Tennessee, his hometown.

He will be buried in the Maplewood Cemetery Monday at 2 p.m. with full military honors.
