Officer McLeod was shot and killed when he attempted to intervene in a fight at a café he was eating at in Brooklyn, New York. 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.

Officer McLeod had been with the agency for two years and was survived by his wife and 2-year-old son.
