Family and friends of a Chicago police officer who was struck and killed while riding his bike create a memorial in his honor.

They gathered for a slow bike ride near the scene of the crash.

Thirty-year-old Brian McDevitt was a few minutes into his ride June 11 when he was hit while crossing into a forest preserve near 135th and Ridgeland in Palos Heights.

McDevitt's loved ones left a ghost bike at that location as a memorial and as a reminder to others to bike and drive safely.
