Patrolman Walter McQuarry was shot and killed as he attempted to question a suspected thief on East Greenwich Road in Apponaug Village.

Just after midnight Patrolman McQuarry and a companion stopped a man who was carrying a bag over his shoulder. When asked to give an account of himself, the suspect drew a revolver and opened fire. Patrolman McQuarry was shot through the heart and killed instantly. His companion was seriously wounded. A posse failed to locate the suspect.

Patrolman McQuarry had worked for the Warwick Police Department for only one year. He was survived by his wife, daughter, mother, and brother.
