Patrolman Reddy was shot and killed as he and his partner attempted to arrest a man wanted for beating a woman. When the officers arrived at the man's home they located him in the garage. They informed the man he was under arrest but, instead of surrendering, the man opened fire, mortally wounding Patrolman Reddy.

Both officers returned fire, killing the suspect.
