Funeral services are set for 13-year old Tyre King.

The family of Tyre King say the 13-year old's funeral is set for Saturday.

King was shot by police last week after they were called to the scene of an armed robbery.

Police say King had a BB gun that looked like an authentic firearm.

In a statement today, the King family asks that media cameras be kept out of the service.

Tyre King funeral is scheduled Saturday at 10 a.m. at First Church of God on Refugee Road.
