Fallen New Castle Officer Honored In Fraternal Order Of Police Memorial Ceremony

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Police from around Pennsylvania are honoring four members of law enforcement who were killed or died last year from injuries sustained while on duty.

Monday's ceremony in the Forum auditorium adjacent to the state Capitol was attended by Gov. Tom Wolf, Attorney General Josh Shapiro and other top state officials.

The Fraternal Order of Police's annual memorial ceremony honored Philadelphia police Officer Raymond Diaz Jr., Deputy U.S. Marshal Christopher David Hill, New Castle police Sgt. Brian Scott Cuscino and York City police Officer Alex Sable.

Officials say Diaz died of complications from a car accident, Sable went into cardiac arrest during a training exercise and Cuscino suffered a heart attack during a mandatory physical fitness program.

Hill was killed by friendly fire during a shootout with a suspect.
