Chief Ralph Dailey and Chief Edward Brennan, of the Wyoming Borough Police Department, were shot and killed by a man who was creating a disturbance in West Wyoming Borough. Chief Dailey was attempting to disperse a crowd of people when the suspect opened fire, killing him.

The suspect fled to Wyoming Borough where he was confronted by Chief Brennan. As Chief Brennan chased the suspect, the suspect turned and shot him. The man was apprehended, but acquitted of both murders because the evidence presented in the trial was mostly circumstantial.
