Officer Osmer Milbert was shot and killed after he and several other officers responded to what they believed to be a suicide call on Broadway. When they arrived at the scene they were immediately fired upon by a suspect who had just shot and wounded his brother-in-law.

Officer Milbert was shot once in the neck as he took cover behind an ambulance. The suspect surrendered a short time later after being shot in the leg during the ensuing shootout. Another officer was also wounded during the shootout. The suspect was committed to a mental hospital.

Officer Milbert had served with the Quincy Police Department for 10 years. He was survived by his wife.
