This article is more than 8 years old.

Gov. Deval Patrick is among the thousands expected to attend the funeral for a veteran Woburn police officer who was fatally shot during a department store robbery.

Patrick will join Friday around 2,000 of law enforcement officials from around New England who are expected to pay their last respects for 60-year-old John Maguire. The funeral is scheduled at Aleppo Shrine Auditorium in Wilmington.

Authorities say career criminal Dominic Cinelli killed Maguire on Sunday during a Kohl's department store robbery. The 57-year-old Cinelli was also shot and killed.

Larry Gadue, a cousin of Maguire, said the hundreds of officers who attended a Maguire's wake Thursday was a great honor. Gadue attended the wake and brought the police badge of Maguire's father, who once served as Woburn police chief.
