A small memorial with candles, flowers and a toy motorcycle now graces the sidewalk on Colorado Street between Dauphin and Susquehanna streets near where Philadelphia Police Officer Patrick McDonald was gunned down by Daniel Giddings on Tuesday afternoon.
Michael McFall, operations manager of Temple’s Campus Safety Services said that Temple Police have not received any newer information about the incident directly from the Philadelphia Police but that Temple Police personnel and their honor guard will be present at McDonald’s funeral Tuesday at noon at the Cathedral Basilica of Ss. Peter and Paul at 18th Street and Benjamin Franklin Parkway.
“At a time like this, we’re all brothers and sisters in law enforcement,” McFall said. “And it’s appropriate to show our respect.”
