“Reda immigrated with his parents from Morocco to Malden at the age of 5 years old. His longtime dream was to become a police officer which is why he joined the Army National Guard at 17 years old. This fall, he was getting ready to start his senior year at Framingham State University where he majors in Criminology,” wrote his girlfriend.

Framingham Fire responded to the Massachusetts National Guard armory on Saturday around noon and transported the 22-year-old to UMass Memorial Medical Center in Worcester.
