Officer Doug Byrne was killed in an automobile crash while responding to a medical emergency call at approximately 8:00 pm.

He was transported to Swedish Medical Center where he succumbed to his injuries early the following morning.

Officer Byrne was a United States Marine Corps veteran of the Gulf War. He had served with the Aurora Police Department for three years and had previously served with the Glendale Police Department for six years.
