Officer Sebold was shot and killed after being told that a man with a gun was in a church on North 20th Street. As Officer Sebold approached the man, who was sitting on the church's front steps, the man produced a revolver and shot him twice in the chest at close range. The man then fled into a housing project across the street. During the ensuing the search the man was shot and wounded by another officer and eventually taken into custody.

Officer Sebold was assigned to the Fourth District and had served with the agency for 17 years. He was survived by his wife and six children.

This brave officer, most likely a distant cousin I never knew, was struck down in the line of duty protecting the City he loved. I humbly salute him and pray he has gone on to a better life.
