Patrolman Phillip Fahy was shot and killed by a subject who had argued with the officer over a parking ticket.

The man fled and was pursued by Patrolman Fahy and his partner. The suspect stopped his vehicle on the Williams Street Extension and opened fire with a shotgun, striking Patrolman Fahy in the chest. The other officer returned fire and wounded the suspect, who was taken into custody.

The suspect was later convicted of first degree murder and sentenced to life in prison. The suspect died while still imprisoned on July 1, 2004.

Patrolman Fahy was survived by his expectant wife.
