Sergeant Gerald E. Doll was shot and killed during a traffic stop.

Sergeant Doll spotted a station wagon speeding north on Cicero Avenue and pursued the vehicle where it stopped at the corner of Shakespeare Avenue. As Sergeant Doll approached, the driver produced a sawed off-shotgun and fired at point blank range Sergeant Doll was fatally wounded in the attack. The gunman and his female companion then fled into an alley. Patrolman William Redden, who had joined the auto chase, followed the two shooting as he ran. He then returned to help Sergeant Doll.

The woman was found by police minutes later in a garage, seriously wounded. The man was discovered early the next morning in a gangway, dead from gunshot wounds.

Sergeant Doll had served with the agency for 11 years and had previously served with the United States Army. He was survived by his expectant wife and four children.
