Patrolman George H. Helstern and his partner, Officer Charles Brady, approached a suspicious male on a corner. As the officers approached, the man drew a revolver and fired several shots.

Both Officer George Helstern and his partner, Officer Charles Bardy sustained fatal gunshot wounds in the encounter.

In December 1945 the killer was shot and killed by members of his own gang in fear that he would turn in other gang members.
