Patrolman Leo Bajerski was shot and killed while attempting repossess a car.

He had gone to a garage in Depew with several other officers to enforce the court order. The owner of the shop told the officers he would get the keys from his office. While the officers were waiting the owner fired one round from a shotgun, striking Patrolman Bajerski in the head. The suspect committed suicide after exchanging shots with other officers.

Patrolman Bajerski was survived by his wife and two young children.

I said a little prayer today for Patrolman Bajerski and his family. He may be gone but never forgotten. He will always be a New York HERO.
