Patrolman Francis Mallon was shot and killed when he attempted to move a suspicious person. Patrolman Mallon observed the suspicious man in front of 30 Catherine Street in Manhattan and asked the suspect to move. When the suspect refused, Patrolman Mallon grabbed him and forced him to move. The suspect drew a revolver from his person and shot Patrolman Mallon in the head, killing him.

Two Patrolmen walking their patrol beat heard the shot and responded. They found the suspect standing over Patrolman Mallon's body. A fierce struggle ensued, and the suspect was shot by one of the patrolmen.

Patrolman Mallon was assigned to the 4th Precinct, the present day 5th Precinct.
