PHOENIX (AP) — Friends and family of a Phoenix lawyer who died from gunshot wounds in an office shooting remember him as a good man who was always professional.

A memorial service for Mark Hummels was held Tuesday evening at the Orpheum Theater in downtown Phoenix.

The 43-year-old was the second of three people hit by gunfire to die from the Jan. 30 attack.

Colleagues say Hummels was a rising star in his profession and dedicated to his wife, 9-year-old daughter and 7-year-old son.

He worked with the Phoenix law firm Osborn Maledon and focused on business disputes, real estate litigation and malpractice defense.

Hummels was a reporter for the Albuquerque Journal and Santa Fe New Mexican before he left to go to law school in 2001.

He graduated first in his class.
