A Miami police officer who patrolled the Coconut Grove area and had been on the force less than five years died Sunday from an apparent aneurysm.

Miami police told the Miami Herald that Orlando Machado, 38, who was married and has two children, suffered the aneurysm Friday while off-duty and doctors removed him from life support Sunday.

Machado will get a proper police burial later in the week, the Miami PD says.
