Two Abington police officers are the proud recipients of congressional citations (WPVI)

Two Abington police officers are the proud recipients, Thursday night, of congressional citations.

Representative Brendan Boyle presented Sgt. Ozzie Toledo and Ofc. Gary Martinez with the honors for keeping their cool, in the face of a life-and-death situation.

A despondent man in Upper Dublin tried committing so-called "suicide by cop" last month, but instead of resorting to deadly force the officers were able to grab the man's gun as he
fired shots and wrestle him down safely.
