The memorial service for a Texas A&M Student killed this week is set for Saturday morning in Houston.

19-year-old Garrett Luce died after being hit by a train early Sunday morning near University Drive and Wellborn Road in College Station.

Union Pacific Railroad officials say the train sounded its horn several times but Luce was laying on the tracks and didn't move.

Wednesday night his fraternity Kappa Alpha hosted a candlelight vigil on the Texas A&M campus.

His funeral service is set for 11 A.M. Saturday at:
The Worship Center of Second Baptist Church
6400 Woodway Drive

The College Station Police Department, Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission and Union Pacific Railroad are investigating what led up to the incident.

Toxicology results to determine if alcohol was involved are expected to be complete in the coming weeks.
