TUCSON, Ariz. -- The Tucson Police Department is mourning the death of one of their own.

TPD says officer Joseph Pat Olguin had just gotten off duty late Sunday morning and was heading eastbound on 6th Street on his personal motorcycle when a car made a left turn in his path.

The car's driver, an elderly female, was cited for failure to yield.

Officer Olguin had been with TPD for 20 years, most recently as a patrol officer in the midtown area.
