Patrolman Frank Dunn was shot and killed in an ambush situation while walking his downtown beat.

When checking on a business, a man rounded the corner and for no apparent reason shot Patrolman Dunn four times in the chest. A massive manhunt led into Chicago where the suspect was apprehended after a sharp-eyed hotel clerk recognized a roomer who had been living at a Hammond hotel until the day Patrolman Dunn was shot.

Patrolman Dunn had served with the Hammond Police Department for over 9½ years.
