Sources told Variety Osmond died at his Los Angeles home surrounded by family members. The cause of death is unknown.

In 1970, Osmond joined the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) and grew a mustache which helped to secure his anonymity, working as a motorcycle officer.

On September 20, 1980, Osmond was struck by five bullets while in a foot chase with a suspected car thief.

He was saved from four of the bullets by his bullet-resistant vest, with the fifth bullet ricocheting off of his belt buckle.

Osmond was placed on disability and eventually retired from the force in 1988.

The shooting was later dramatized in a November 1992 episode of the CBS series Top Cops.

Henry Lane, Osmond’s former partner at the Los Angeles Police Department, also confirmed the news and said he had suffered from respiratory issues.

Eddie came on Leave it to Beaver as a guest star but stayed due to his popularity with the audience. He was on all six seasons.

The show was a massive hit about the Cleaver family as dad works, mom cooks and the kids Wally and Beaver good around.
