SAN JOSE, Calif. (KGO) -- Funeral services will be held on Wednesday for a Manny Zuniga, the San Jose security guard who was murdered while saving a colleague's life.

Zuniga was gunned down on February 14, as he tried to intervene when a man stole a box of cigars from a liquor store located a few doors away from BBOSS nightclub, where Zuniga worked.

A fellow security guard says Zuniga saved his life by diving into the line of fire.

San Jose police have arrested two people in the case.

Zuniga will eventually be buried in Mexico.
