Summary: Patrolman Leonard was shot and killed when he and his brother, also an officer on the department, responded to a report of a man threatening store employees with a gun on East Federal Street. When the officers arrived they encountered the suspect with his hand in a pocket of his overcoat. When Patrolman Leonard grabbed the man's arm the man fired a shot through the overcoat, striking him in the abdomen. Although wounded, Patrolman Leonard and his brother continued to struggle with the suspect, who was beaten into unconsciousness.

Patrolman Leonard was transported to St. Elizabeth's Hospital where he succumbed to his wound the following the day. The suspect also died as a result of the injuries sustained while resisting the officers.
