Patrolman Clancy died of injuries he sustained when he was assaulted by a man he had previously arrested.

Patrolman Clancy was on the corner of 3rd Avenue and Carroll Street speaking with the local butcher when a male walked up behind Patrolman Clancy and struck him in the head with a baseball bat. Patrolman Clancy was taken to Seney Hospital where he died one month later from his wounds, which included a fractured skull.

The suspect was arrested and charged with murder. He was convicted after a trial and sentenced to life in prison.

Patrolman Clancy had served with the Brooklyn Police Department for 3 1/2 years and was survived by his wife and three children.

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