PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Dan Aykroyd plans to make a donation to the family of a Philadelphia police officer killed in the line of duty.

KYW-TV reports the actor made the announcement Friday while visiting the Philadelphia Flower Show to promote his vodka company.

Officer Robert Wilson III was buying a video game for his son while on duty Thursday when police say two brothers entered the store to rob it. Police say Wilson exchanged fire with the suspects and was shot multiple times in the body and head.

Police officials say the 8-year veteran saved lives by drawing fire away from other patrons in the store.

The suspects are charged with murder.

      Is the good news, that Dan Akyroyd plans to donate, or that the murders are being charged? While both are good, the fact that this cop were murdered is not. What exactly needs to be talked about? ija
