MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) - A large number of emergency vehicles gathered at UW Hospital on Wednesday morning for an honor guard escort.

The university’s police department alerted people that they would see the emergency vehicles, including members from its department and other area police departments, in the area through approximately 10:30 a.m.

The Madison Police Department confirmed the honor guard was for its officer who recently died.

On Tuesday night, MPD confirmed to NBC15 News that one of its officers passed away that day from an illness.

A spokesperson for the police department declined to provide more details about the officer’s death out of respect for the family. She said the police department expected to release more details sometime this week.
