Leggett proposes renaming Wheaton/Glenmont pool after fallen officer

Montgomery County Executive Ike Leggett has proposed renaming the Wheaton/Glenmont Outdoor Pool facility as the Hector Ayala Wheaton/Glenmont Outdoor Pool. Ayala, a Montgomery County police officer, was killed in the line of duty in April 2010, while responding to an emergency call.

En route to help a fellow officer at the scene of a fight, Ayala's police cruiser left the roadway and struck a tree on Randolph Road. He was survived by his widow, who was pregnant at the time with triplets.

Ayala, 31, spent his entire career patroling the Wheaton area.
