A memorial service for Michael Jackson may be scheduled for Tuesday morning at Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles, according to reports.

The 20,000-seat coliseum – where Jackson last performed and rehearsed just two days before his death – will likely host the service at 10 a.m.

Local law enforcement confirmed a special event will take place at Staples but did not provide additional details. Police have already been stationed near the area and have set up barriers, according to local station KABC.

"They're figuring it all out right now," a source tells PEOPLE. "There is still a lot of work though."

The Jackson family, who hoped to have a funeral at Neverland was not able to obtain a residential exemption required for a burial on private party.
