Officer Boyle succumbed to a gunshot wound sustained two days earlier after stopping a stolen car. The suspect was found after falling through a skylight into an apartment after setting himself on fire. The man was sentenced to death, but the sentence was vacated in 2015 when he was ordered to serve live without possibility of parole.

Officer Boyle had served with the agency for seven months since graduating from academy. He was survived by his mother, father, stepmother, and two sisters. His father also served as a detective with the Philadelphia Police Department.

I remember this day. I was working day shift after Officer Boyle was shot. We were in two person patrol cars and I remember we were fixated to the radio, because they kept giving us updates on his condition. At first it looked like he would pull through, but then the radio crackled with the message that he was pronounced dead. The shock waves were running through the entire city. It was a bad day for Law Enforcement. R.I.P. Officer Ted Thomas Retired Philadelphia P.D.
