LAPD Officer Killed By Roadside Bomb In Afghanistan

October 20, 2010  | 

The Los Angeles Police Department lost one of their own, as the department learned Marine reservist Staff Sgt. Joshua J. Cullins had died as a result of injuries sustained while working as an explosive ordnance officer in Afghanistan, reports the Los Angeles Times.

Cullins had bounced back from a concussion suffered during the July 16 explosion of a roadside bomb.
