Officer Thomas Deasy was shot and killed when he attempted to question a suspicious man.

Officer Deasy observed the suspect step from the Washington Street entrance to Alta Plaza. Officer Deasy called to the suspect "What are you doing?" The suspect replied "None of your business." When officer Deasy approached to investigate the suspect stuck him with a cane he was carrying.

Officer Deasy reached for his gun, but before he could draw the suspect shot from his hip through his overcoat. The suspect then drew the revolver from his pocket and fired again, striking Officer Deasy in the neck. Before he died, Officer Deasy was able to relay a description of the suspect to responding officers, but the suspect was never identified.

Officer Deasy was survived by his wife and son.
