Flags are being lowered to half-staff around Illinois in honor of an off-duty Cook County sheriff’s investigator who was killed while trying to stop an armed robbery outside a family Christmas party in suburban Chicago.

Governor Pat Quinn’s office ordered U.S. and state flags to be lowered starting at sunrise today in memory of Cuauhtemoc Estrada.

The 50-year-old man was shot in the chest last Friday while trying to stop two people from robbing his daughter and her boyfriend.

The flags will remain lowered until sunset Saturday.

A wake for Estrada is being held Friday in Hillside.

A funeral service is scheduled for Saturday at Holy Name Cathedral on State Street in Chicago.  Estrada will be buried at Queen of Heaven Cemetery in Hillside.
