Hundreds of police cars have lined streets in Edmonton as the bodies of two slain city officers are transported from the medical examiner's office to a funeral home.

Blue ribbons are wrapped around street lights along the five-kilometre procession route.

Civilians are also standing along the streets to show their support, some wearing blue ribbons and scarves.

The bodies of Const. Brett Ryan and Const.Travis Jordan are to be kept at the Serenity Funeral Home until a public regimental funeral is held Monday at Rogers Place arena.

Police have said the officers were responding to a family dispute at a northwest apartment complex when they were shot multiple times by a 16-year-old boy.

Police say the teen shot and wounded his mother during a struggle for the gun then shot and killed himself.
