Officer Timothy O'Connor was shot and killed during an armed robbery.

Officer O'Connor was assigned to guard a garage for delivery trucks of a major department sore. He observed six armed men enter the garage. After seeing Officer O'Connor, the men began firing their guns. Officer O'Connor incurred a serious wound in the attack and died as a result of his injury.

On March 1, 1922, the six suspects were apprehended in Chicago. They were also implicated in three other Chicago armed robberies, one a bank robbery, in which the president of the Maywood State Bank and another man were shot and killed.

The Chicago Police Training Academy is named for Officer O'Connor.
