Patrolman Frank Zaccor was shot and killed during a robbery in progress on West 31st Street.

He was on foot patrol when he looked inside the front window of a bar and observed three men robbing the patrons and cash register. Patrolman Zaccor opened the front door and ordered the men to drop their weapons. One of the men opened fire on him, striking him in the abdomen. Although mortally wounded, Patrolman Zaccor was able to return fire and killed one of the suspects.
