Officer Alyn Beck was shot and killed while eating lunch with fellow Officer Igor Soldo, whom also died in the shooting. Officer Beck (41) was a senior patrol officer who joined the Metropolitan Police Department in 2001. Soon before his death, he had interviewed and tested for promotion to sergeant and was expected to pass with ease. He had a passion for training and many of his response tactics that he taught in his department are used across the US today. He is survived by his wife and 11-year old daughter.
