DELMAR, Del. (AP) — The body of a Delaware police officer who died after authorities say he was attacked responding to a fight has returned to his home state with a police escort.

Law enforcement agencies from Maryland and Delaware escorted the body of Corporal Keith Heacook from the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore to Delmar. Heacook died Wednesday at the hospital from injuries he suffered April 25 in the line of duty.

He was 54.

Authorities say Heacook was attacked by a Maryland man after responding to a report of a fight in Delmar.
