Patrolman Hipwell was shot and killed while walking his beat in an area of Williamsburgh. There has been several burglaries in the area, so additional officers were assigned to the area. After briefly talking to another Patrolman at 0330 hours, Patrolman Hipwell began to patrol again. A short time later the other Patrolman heard a gunshot and found Patrolman Hipwell with a gunshot wound through his heart.

Patrolman Hipwell was assigned to the 45th, the present day New York City Police Department 90th Precinct. He was survived by his wife.
