Chicago police officers gathered early Tuesday to honor one of their own in a memorial for Sgt. Alan Haymaker.

The sergeant was killed one year ago Tuesday while he was responding to a burglary call.

Tuesday's memorial took place during the 5 a.m. hour, which is when Haymaker's car crashed near Lake Shore Drive at Irving Park Road.

Haymaker was a third-generation officer with the Chicago Police Department and had served 21 years.
