Volunteer Police Officer Dies After Fall Off Bridge During Chase
(East St. Louis, IL) — A volunteer police officer from Washington Park is dead after falling from a bridge during a chase. Ricardo Davis was following two suspects on foot Saturday across the Poplar Street Bridge in East St. Louis when he fell 50 feet through a gap in the bridge where construction work was being done. He was taken to a nearby hospital, where he died soon afterward. Family and friends held a candlelight vigil in his honor last night outside the Gas Mart in East St. Louis, where he had worked as a security guard.
