A Massachusetts police department made a Christmas gift come true for a 4-year-old boy whose mother was recently murdered.
The Fitchburg Police Department said in a Facebook Sunday that little JJ has been living with his grandparents since his mother was killed.
The boy loves anything to do with police, the department said -- and on Sunday, Fitchburg cops and neighboring departments gathered together in JJ's new hometown to give the boy a spot of brightness in the dark of his recent family tragedy.
They showed up with a parade of police cars and officers. A city official donated a green bicycle for JJ and cops bought gifts for the boy as well.
The Fitchburg department posted photos of a smiling JJ surrounded by police and love. The Facebook post has since been shared 2,000 times.
