Jose Raimundo DeLeon

Police Officer Jose DeLeon was killed in a motorcycle crash at the intersection of SW 8th Avenue and SW 11th Street while attempting to make a traffic stop.

When he pulled out to stop the car it accelerated in an attempt to evade him. He began pursuing the vehicle when another car pulled over then veered back into his path. The impact propelled him through the air and knocked his helmet off. He struck his head on the curb and suffered fatal head injuries.

Officer DeLeon had served with the Miami Police Department for two years. He was survived by his wife and two young sons.
