Memorial services for Colorado shooting victim Alex Teves are scheduled for today in Ahwatukee.

Friends, family and those wishing to pay respects to Teves and his family can visit Corpus Christi Catholic Church at 3550 E. Knox Road at 11 a.m. Saturday.

Teves died more than a week ago protecting his girlfriend from gunfire in the mass theater shooting in Aurora, Colo.

The incident took the lives of 11 others and injured 58 more.

This memorial service will be the first for the family in their home community of Ahwatukee.

A funeral was held earlier this week in Colorado.
