Officer DeRoo was killed when his patrol car struck a tree. At 0145 hours Officer DeRoo was responding to a report of an unconscious man laying in the street, when his patrol car struck a tree on a curve on the Montauk Highway. Officer DeRoo died at the scene from his injuries. The call he was responding to was later determined to be unfounded.

I said a little prayer today for Police Officer DeRoo and his family. He may be gone but never forgotten. He will always be a New York HERO.
