Lex. Park Honors Fallen Officer

Dozens of people gathered in a little park near Transylvania University on Monday night to dedicate a memorial to fallen Lexington police officer Bryan Durman. Seth Brewer, president of the Northside Neighborhood Association, which owns the park, said the group decided to honor Durman because "he was our guy."
"He was our officer, and he died here, so it seemed right," he said. Durman, 27, was hit by a sport-utility vehicle on North Limestone while investigating a noise complaint on the night of April 29, 2010. He was the first Lexington police offer to die in the line of duty in about 25 years.
