A fallen Philadelphia police officer is being remembered five years after his death.

On Thursday, the department presented Officer Brian Lorenzo's loved ones with an original portrait at police headquarters.

Lorenzo was killed in July of 2012, when a drunk driver hit his police motorcycle on I-95.

His brother, who's also a Philadelphia police officer, was among the family members who accepted the painting.
