Temple University renames block after Officer who lost his life in the line of duty

Yesterday was the renaming ceremony of the 1700 block of West Montgomery Avenue in Philadelphia to Christopher Fitzgerald Way.

Officer Fitzgerald was a Temple University police officer who was killed in the line of duty while protecting his community. He was also son of a former Allentown police chief, Joe Fitzgerald, Sr.

Fitzgerald was 31-years-old and a father of five children.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and loved ones.
