— A soldier killed in shootings at Fort Hood, Texas, earlier this month is being remembered at private services in central Florida.

The Ledger reports that an honor guard joined the family of Sgt. 1st Class Daniel Ferguson to greet the soldier's casket Friday at Tampa International Airport.

A private funeral was held Saturday morning in Lakeland, where Ferguson's parents live. Ferguson will be buried at Florida National Cemetery in Bushnell. Gov. Rick Scott ordered the U.S. and state flags to be flown at half-staff Saturday at the Florida Capitol, Polk County Courthouse and Mulberry City Hall.

Ferguson was one of three people killed in the April 2 shooting spree. He died while barricading a door, keeping the gunman from pushing into a room where others could have been killed.
