Officer Patrick McGovern was shot and killed when he was ambushed by armed robbers.

Officer McGovern was assigned to escort a theater employee carrying cash receipts to a bank. Officer McGovern was unaware that three armed offenders waited in a nearby parked automobile. As Officer McGovern and the citizen passed by, the offenders jumped from the car and opened fire. The brave officer died soon after of multiple gunshot wounds.
