Police Officer Robert Sorrentino was shot and killed while chasing five suspects who had just robbed a club in the Far Rockaway section of Queens.

He and his partner had split up to chase the suspects, who had also split up. After his partner captured one of the men he heard shots fired and ran to Officer Sorrentino's location, where he found Officer Sorrentino suffering from gunshot wounds in a schoolyard at 595 Beach 19th Street. Officer Sorrentino was transported to a local hospital where he succumbed to his wounds two weeks later.

All five of the suspects were eventually apprehended and convicted. In January 2007, the only offender still alive was denied parole.

Officer Sorrentino was assigned to the 101st Precinct and had served with the agency for seven years. He is survived by his wife and three stepchildren, his parents, and five siblings.
