(Harrisburg) -- Police from around Pennsylvania are honoring four members of law enforcement who died or were killed on duty last year.

Monday's ceremony in the Forum auditorium across the street from the state Capitol was attended by Gov. Tom Wolf, Attorney General Josh Shapiro, House Speaker Mike Turzai and other top state officials.

The Fraternal Order of Police's annual memorial ceremony honored Philadelphia police Officer Raymond Diaz Jr., Deputy U.S. Marshal Christopher David Hill, New Castle police Sgt. Brian Scott Cuscino and York City police Officer Alex Sable.

Officials say Diaz died of complications from a car accident, Sable went into cardiac arrest during a training exercise and Cuscino suffered a heart attack during a mandatory physical fitness program.

Hill was killed by friendly fire during a shootout with a suspect in Harrisburg in January 2018.
