Off-duty Phila. police officer Marc Brady dies when intentionally struck by driver in Mt. Airy

12:30 p.m. update: A 32-year-old off-duty police officer died shortly after a Sunday night incident in which he was struck by a vehicle while riding a bicycle in Mt. Airy.

The incident occured at 11:31 p.m. at Musgrave Street and Meehan Avenue. Officer Marc Brady, an eight-year police veteran who worked in the 22nd District, was transported to Albert Einstein Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead at 12:05 a.m. Philadelphia police were interviewing the driver Monday morning.

Roland Lee, commanding officer of the 22nd Police District, said Officer Brady went over to a former fiancés house to see his children and that’s when an altercation broke out between him and a person at that house.

“Nobody deserves to die that way,” said Lee, who noted that Brady was likely going to visit his six children.
