Patrolman Arthur Loewe was shot and killed when he approached four men committing a burglary in Brooklyn.

Patrolman Loewe was informed by a citizen that there were four suspicious men in the rear yard at 253 Seventh Avenue, Brooklyn. Patrolman Loewe entered the rear of the building and as he approached the men, he was shot four times by the suspects. Patrolman Loewe was removed to the hospital and died several hours later from his wounds.

One of the suspects was shot by Officer Loewe in the gunfire and died the next day. A second suspect was arrested after his identity was dissevered in a notebook that was found on the deceased suspect.

Patrolman Loewe was assigned to the 78th Precinct (present day 72nd Precinct) and had served with the New York City Police Department for five years and was a veteran of World War I. He was posthumerously awarded the New York City Police Department Medal of Honor.

Patrolman Loewe was survived by his wife and 10 siblings.
