A fifth Los Angeles Police Department employee, and the third officer, has died of complications from COVID-19, Chief Michel Moore said.

Sgt. Amelia “Terry” Martinez, assigned to the Hollenbeck Division, died Tuesday, he said. She was 53.

“We thank you for your service and you will be greatly missed,” Moore said. “May God welcome you home and may God bless the Los Angeles Police Department.”

Martinez is survived by her sons, Robert and Steven, and daughter Amanda Lara, as well as her mother and siblings, Moore said.

The other LAPD employees who have died of coronavirus complications: Police Service representative Raymond Guerrero, 24, who died earlier this month; Sgt. Fred Cueto, a 22-year veteran who died in December; and detention Officer Erica McAdoo, 39, and Officer Valentin Martinez, 45, who both died in July.
