Police Officer Daniel Maloney was shot and killed by an attempted-rape suspect after while trying to stop a suspicious vehicle.

Dispatchers had just taken the call from the victim and where getting ready to broadcast it when Officer Maloney radioed in the suspicious vehicle. When he attempted to stop the vehicle it sped away and Officer Maloney chased it into a dead-end on Challedon Drive. The suspect jumped out of the vehicle and ran towards Officer Maloney's police car firing, striking him several times through the driver's window.

Officer Maloney was able to radio that he had been shot as the suspect returned to his car and fled. Another officer stopped the vehicle and the suspect immediately exited and opened fire. The officer returned fired and killed the suspect.

I was a college friend of Daniel T. Maloney at Hilbert College in Hamburg, NY. We worked in the college library together and had many great times. He was an outgoing, friendly South Buffalo boy who was a great friend. I only recently learned of his tragic death that occurred over 32 years ago and was horribly shocked. He was in the criminal justice program in college and had ambitions to be a police officer but nothing could have prepared me for what I found on-line. I am so glad to hear that his child is a fine young man following in his father's footsteps. I am now searching for the burial place of Dan Maloney and have had no luck. I thought he might be buried here in Buffalo but the Catholic cemeteries cannot locate his grave. If anyone knows Dan's final resting place, please let me know. I will remember Dan forever as a wonderful guy, full of life. Rest in peace my friend.
