Officer Dennis Obradovich was shot and killed while attempting to apprehend four armed suspects who were robbing a lounge. He was off-duty when the four men entered and announced a holdup. When he identified himself and attempted to take action he was shot. As the suspects fled they shot him several more times as he laid on the floor.

All four suspects were convicted of first degree murder, armed robbery, and sentenced to life plus 60 years on February 11, 1976.

Officer Obradovich had been employed with the Milwaukee Police Department for a little over six years and is survived by his parents.
