Arlington police officer dies of cancer at 45

An Arlington police officer died of cancer Tuesday, the department announced.

Alan Webb, 45, a patrol officer, was a nine-year veteran of the department. He was diagnosed with colon cancer last summer, according to a GoFundMe page, which raised more than $20,000 for his family’s expenses.

Webb was a former junior high football coach before becoming a cop, according to a CBS 11 story in November.
