Lieutenant Lloyd Leaman was shot and killed with his own weapon at the Glen Riddle Station in Glen Riddle, Pennsylvania.

He was supervising a squad of 12 railroad detectives who were searching the Ontario Branch Line for a group of thieves who had been stealing from railroad property in the area. He was checking the Glen Riddle Station at approximately 4:00 am when he encountered several men exiting the station with stolen property. He was attacked, disarmed, and in the head with his own service revolver.

Two men were arrested in connection with his murder but were later released.

Lieutenant Leaman was survived by his wife and father.
