Policeman Jewell was shot and killed while investigating a group of drunk and disorderly men.

Policeman Jewell and four officers responded to the Pennsylvania Railroad Station to investigate a report of a disorderly group causing problems. One of the officers was armed with a firearm. As the officers approached the group, the men fled on foot. One of the men opened fire, striking Policeman Jewell in the abdomen, killing him.

The other officers quickly arrested the suspect, who was found in possession of a stick of dynamite and burglar's tool. The suspect was charged with murder.

Policeman Jewell was survived by his wife and four children.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 114th anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer who was murdered in the the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered.

Rest In Peace.
