Patrolman Leroy Bouker was shot and killed by three suspects who had just committed a holdup of a meat market.

He was responding to shots he had heard when he observed the men getting into a vehicle outside of the market. He drew his weapon and told the men to stop. They immediately drew their weapons and shot him several times, killing him.

The four suspects escaped but were later captured in other states and returned to Cleveland. They were all sentenced to life in prison.

Patrolman Bouker was survived by his wife, three sons, and two daughters.
