Family and friends remembered a police officer who lost his life serving the people of Chicago. Eric Solorio died 8 years ago Wednesday.

Solorio was a member of the department's elite gang unit. In January 2006, the squad car he was riding in swerved to avoid an accident, hit black ice and crashed.

Solorio died several weeks later. In 2010, a new high school was named in his memory.
