Kansas Group To Protest at Lubbock Soldier's Funeral

Thursday, memorial services will be held for a fallen Lubbock soldier and authorities have been put on alert.

A group out of Kansas is planning to protest Andrew Velez's memorial service.  They will have to stay at least 500 feet away. Senator Robert Duncan of Lubbock sponsored a bill making it illegal to protest near a military funeral. It went into effect back in May. 

The memorial service is Thursday night at 7 p.m. at the First Church of the Nazarene. Velez was killed in Afghanistan last week.
