Officer Brian Huff was gunned down in the line of duty three years ago.


Detroit police Officer Brian Huff, who was killed in the line of duty in 2010, was honored Friday with the retirement of his scout car, 5-14.

In an emotional early morning memorial service, which was attended by many of Detroit's finest and Huff's family, the car was officially retired at 3:50 a.m.

From here on, the crew assigned to vehicle 5-14 will revert to 5-13.

Huff was a 42-year-old husband and father. He was fatally shot May 3, 2010, while investigating a complaint at an abandoned duplex.
