Patrolman Jacob Manko died from wounds suffered four days earlier after being shot by an unknown man he saw walking through a neighborhood early Sunday morning in his stocking feet. When Patrolman Manko hailed the suspicious character, the man turned and fired his .32-caliber revolver, hitting Patrolman Manko in the chest.

Patrolman Manko staggered into a tavern, where he collapsed and died four days later.

Even though your passing has been over 100 years, your sacrifice will neve be forgotten. You are thought of often as one of those who paid the ultimate price to protect the city you worked in so others could live in peace.
