Officers Gregory A. Hauser and Raymond Kilroy were shot and mortally wounded when they responded to a domestic disturbance between a woman and her grandson. As they talked to the grandson in a garage, he suddenly grabbed one of the officers' weapons. The suspect then fired several shots, striking both Officer Hauser and Officer Kilroy.

The suspect was apprehended and sentenced to life.

The officers were partners until the end, having joined the Department together twenty years earlier. Officer Hauser is survived by his wife and three children.

Rest in peace Officer Hauser I was just watching an old clip of the Channel 2 news on WBBM-TV. Your valor along with your partner's made your donning of the checkerboard cap, badge and uniform the ultimate salute to your bravery. My father was a New York City Police Officer for almost forty years.
