Police Officer Frank Piszczek was shot and killed after arresting a man at the Union Depot near 2nd Street and Seeboth Street. As he walked the prisoner to jail, located at First Street and Florida Street, the man pulled out a revolver and shot him. The subject fled as Officer Piszczek returned fire, but was never apprehended.

Fellow officers heard the shot and found Officer Piszczek and took him back to the station where he passed away in a sleeping room.

Officer Piszczek had served with the Milwaukee Police Department for four years. He was survived by his wife and five children.

Officer Piszczek is my Great Grandfather's brother. He was an outstanding citizen in his community, gave his last full measure as an officer and he left a wife and 5 little children. His family long suffered and his death transcends generations. His memory is forever etched in my heart.
