Patrolman Pettaway was shot and killed near the intersection of Chippewa Street and Washington Avenue by one of two notorious hoodlums he attempted to arrest for assaulting another man. Both suspects were arrested in Boyce several days later and charged with murder. Both were acquitted because of a lack of evidence. One was shot and killed a year later.
