HATBORO, Pa. (CBS) — This Father’s Day, a local nonprofit is hosting a Jeep caravan to honor fallen Hatboro Police Officer Ryan Allen, who died in April following a traumatic brain injury caused by an allergic reaction to a bee sting.

“I think the hardest part was giving birth and not having Ryan there,” widow Whitney Allen said.

Allen was pregnant with her second child when her husband Ryan suffered a rare traumatic brain injury triggered by a bee sting last October. He passed away April 7 after more than six months in a coma, never getting to say goodbye to his 4-year-old son Jackson or meet his newborn son Leo.

“I see a lot of Ryan in both Jackson and Leo,” Whitney said.

Ryan served as an officer for Hatboro and helped create the department’s first K-9 unit.

“Being an officer specifically, a canine officer, was Ryan’s dream as a little boy,” Whitney said.

Whitney also says support from Ryan’s colleagues and the community — many still displaying signs in his honor — has meant everything especially when tragedy struck twice.

“Ryan’s best friend Steve, who was the police officer in Warrington, passed away six weeks after Ryan,” Whitney said.

Steve Plum Jr., a Warrington K-9 officer, died in a sudden medical event on May 16. He was a husband and father of five.

“That’s Ryan and Steve training there,” Whitney said. “It does bring me some peace if that had to happen to both of them I know they are together.”

Whitney is now working on a book to help others dealing with grief. She says she’s taking it one day at a time, knowing Ryan will be forever close to her heart.

“I know Ryan would want me and the boys to be happy so I wake up every morning thinking, ‘What would he want me to do?'” Whitney said.

Crime and Public Safety | Union City: Suspect identified in recent shooting during robbery

UNION CITY — A 29-year-old Hayward man has been named as one of three suspects arrested on suspicion of multiple charges in connection with a robbery and injury shooting last week, authorities said.

Around 12:36 p.m. August 3, police responded to reports of that shooting near 8th and H streets, with officers arriving to find a 44-year-old man suffering from a gunshot wound to the leg. The man was taken to a hospital for treatment and later released.

In a statement Tuesday, police said the man had been driving nearby when he saw two people robbing a victim of her jewelry before running to a getaway vehicle.

The man was following that vehicle to get its license plate and a description when someone in the vehicle shot at and hit him, police said.

Officers were able to find the getaway vehicle’s occupants in Oakland, where they were arrested.  Police said a vehicle search recovered a high-capacity pistol magazine, but no weapons.

Two juveniles, 16- and 17-year-olds from Hayward, were each arrested on suspicion of robbery, with the two respectively arrested on suspicion of attempted homicide and assault with a deadly weapon.

The third occupant, a 29-year-old Hayward man, was arrested on suspicion of robbery, discharge of a firearm at an occupied vehicle, assault with a semi-automatic firearm and evading arrest.

Police said the man was sought on an outstanding warrant for being a felon in possession of a firearm. The man was listed in custody Tuesday night at Santa Rita Jail, held on $275,000 and awaiting plea and probation revocation hearings August 15 at Dublin’s East County Hall of Justice, according to an Alameda County records check.

An officer reached Tuesday night said that police had not seen any similar incidents before or since the arrests, and confirmed that investigators had presented case evidence to the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office for possible charging.
