June 1, 2020

GRAND FORKS, N.D. – A funeral for fallen Grand Forks police officer Cody Holte will be held Tuesday in Ralph Engelstad Arena on the University of North Dakota campus.

Visitation will be held from 10 a.m. to noon, with the service set to begin at 1 p.m. Both the visitation and funeral service will be open to the public.

The 29 year-old Holte was killed Wednesday in a shooting in Grand Forks while helping sheriff’s deputies who were serving eviction papers.

A woman also was killed. Holte’s family issued a statement calling him “an incredible husband, father, son, brother, uncle, police officer and soldier.” Prosecutors have charged Salamah Pendleton with two counts of murder in the deaths of Holte and Lola Moore.

Holte had worked for the Grand Forks PD for three years, and was a soldier with the North Dakota National Guard.
