On Saturday, hundreds of Amanda Connors friends and family paid their last respects to the 24-year-old who was killed outside a Sioux Falls hair salon on Tuesday.
The line leading to the funeral wrapped around the First Reformed Church in Sioux Falls, as visitors packed in the chapel to honor Connors' life.
Police say Tyrone Smith shot Connors before locking himself inside the Cost Cutters salon on 41st Street and tying up his ex-girlfriend and coworkers. He reportedly killed himself after letting the hostages go.
Police called Connors a hero for trying to stop Smith. Her boyfriend says she will be buried in New Holland.
