West Bloomfield police officers work on the scene at 4558 Forest Edge in West Bloomfield, Mich. on Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2012 where Patrick O’Rourke was killed. He was remembered Monday by stunned family members and colleagues as a loving father, husband and son who was always faithful to the police work that cost him his life. O’Rourke, 39, a married father of four, was shot to death Sunday night while responding to a report of shots fired at a home in West Bloomfield Township. The 12-year department veteran is West Bloomfield’s first officer to die in the line of duty.
