Three suspects in a car attempted to run down five men in front of the café. When they missed they got out of the car and chased the five men into the café that Officer McLeod was eating in. Officer McLeod attempted to intervene when one suspect pulled a gun and fired three times, striking Officer McLeod. Officer McLeod returned fire but failed to hit the suspects. The suspects fled but were arrested a short time later. Officer McLeod was transported to Wyckoff Heights Hospital where he succumbed to his wounds.

Hey I just saw this today Wednesday, Oct. 25, 2017. I am very sad for you and your family. Be proud of him. I was on the PAPD and started in 1973. Never knew this story. God bless him, you, and your family. He was a Hero.
