PHILADELPHIA — Word spread quickly early Sunday morning, prompting anxiety among members of the area's law enforcement community: Veteran Philadelphia police officer Brian "B-Lo" Lorenzo had been killed on his beloved Harley-Davidson Road King.

These lawmen from Pennsylvania and South Jersey contacted lawyer and friend of the police force Jimmy Binns Sunday morning — most of them normally "rough customers," now weeping uncontrollably, he said. "Just tell me it's not true," they told him. "I had to confirm it was true. He was gone," Binns said.
