NORFOLK, Va. (AP) - The Navy is holding a memorial service for a sailor from Maryland who was fatally shot at Naval Station Norfolk.
    
The service for 24-year-old Petty Officer 2nd Class Mark A. Mayo is scheduled for 10 a.m. Monday at the Norfolk base.
    
The Navy has said Mayo was shot March 24 when he rushed to the defense of another sailor after a civilian truck driver disarmed her and took her gun.
    
The gunman, Jeffrey Savage, was killed by Navy security forces responding to the scene.
    
Mayo was a native of Hagerstown, Md., who enlisted in the Navy in October 2007.
    
A funeral is scheduled April 11 in Washington, D.C., where the family lived before moving to Hagerstown in 1998.
