Constable Andrew Conroy was shot and killed as he attempted to confiscate furniture from a home on Penn Avenue in Pittsburgh. The tenant in the home had been ordered to release the furniture to be auctioned for a rent arrearage.

When Conroy informed the man of the confiscation he was fatally shot in the abdomen with a shotgun, and died of his injuries in the home's hallway.

The suspect fled to a hospital across the street from his home where he was taken into custody a short time later. He was convicted of voluntary manslaughter and sentenced to only 27 days in prison. Constable Conroy was a U.S Army veteran of WWI and had served with the Pennsylvania State Constables for eight years.
