A 28-year-old Boston police officer, who was wounded in the Watertown shootout with the Boston Marathon bombing suspects, has died after suffering a medical emergency.
Dennis O. Simmonds, who was set to receive a Top Cop Award from President Obama next month for his valiant service nearly a year ago today, died while on duty Thursday, his department announced Friday.
His cause of death was not disclosed.
His department instead described him as “a highly decorated and beloved” six-year police veteran who was assigned to the Youth Violence Strike Force.
