Patrolman Stuart N. Dean was shot and killed by a religious fanatic turned maniac. Patrolman Dean responded to a house at 320 North Irving Avenue where a man had just shot and killed four of his neighbors and wounded several more with an automatic rifle. The suspect shot Patrolman Dean through the neck and wounded three other officers when they broke into the back door of the suspects home. The suspect and his wife barricaded themselves in their home and exchanged hundreds of shots with over 150 officers. The police decided to explode dynamite under the house as they were unable to make any headway against the rapid and accurate fire of the suspect. The explosion completely destroyed the house and killed the suspect and his wife.

A cartridge belt was found around the waist of the suspect and his wife. The suspect left a note that read, I'm following a direct order from God to start sending people home to him.

Patrolman Dean served in the 29th Precinct and was a member of the Knights of Pythias.
