Mourners Gather In Webster

Hundreds of mourners from the Rochester area and across the state braved the cold and snow on Saturday to pay their final respects to fallen firefighters Lt. Michael Chiapperini and Tomasz Kaczowka.  

Uniformed firefighters, police officers, border patrol agents, and military officers stood in line outside Webster Schroeder High School for a chance to show their support for the Chiapperini and Koczowka families.

The funerals for the two victims of the Christmas Eve attack are scheduled for Sunday and Monday.  

Thousands are expected to attend the services.
