Officer worked for LAPD since 1998
A Los Angeles police officer who was featured in a special birthday video for Tyler Seddon was killed in the line of duty Friday, according to the Los Angeles Times.
Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck said Officer Nicholas Choung Lee was killed when a truck slammed into his police cruiser in Beverly Hills.
“#LAPD Police Officer III Nicholas Lee, Serial No. 34980. A man of greatness and selflessness. Nick was a great cop. May he rest in peace,” Beck tweeted Friday.
Lee was featured in a birthday video created for Seddon, 7, who is battling leukemia for a second time. Seddon’s mother had pleaded for first responders to send him birthday cards, and the response was overwhelming.
