Cape Vincent, N.Y. -- Officials expect as many as 2,000 fire and emergency services personnel from across the country to join in a procession honoring a 25-year-old emergency medical technician killed in the line of duty.

Mark Davis was shot in the Canadian border town of Cape Vincent late Friday. Police say he and two others were treating 25-year-old Christopher Burke when Burke became agitated, got a rifle and fired. Burke was charged with murder.

Glenn Morrison is Jefferson County's director of fire and emergency management. He says a full honor guard of emergency service personnel from across the country will recognize Davis on Saturday.
