Patrolman Charles Lucy was shot and killed while he and another officer attempted to serve a mental warrant on a man at a home on North Street.

As Patrolman Lucy reached the top of the stairs the man appeared and fired two rounds from a shotgun and Patrolman Lucy's face, killing him. Patrolman Lucy's partner, who was standing behind him, caught him with one hand and returned fire with the other hand.

The suspect fled into a room and was later shot and killed by other officers.

Patrolman Lucy was survived by his wife and three sons.

He was my grandfather. His story helped make us who we are. Our grandmother never complained -- she just spoke of him in quiet tones of one who was missed until her death in 1965.

Officer Lucy is memorialized in the memorial bricks at the Police Academy at Indian River State College in Fort Pierce, Florida.
