Sergeant Frederick Schlehuber was shot and killed by a rape suspect while questioning the man in the District Attorney's Office in what is now the John Adams Courthouse.

He was sitting with the stepfather of a victim, waiting for a meeting between the district attorney and suspect, when the suspect suddenly appeared and opened fire. The man shot and killed the stepfather and mortally wounded Sergeant Schlehuber before being subdued by other officers.
