Thomas Morris Ulsh

Constable Thomas Ulsh was shot and killed as he and a member of the Pennsylvania State Police attempted to serve a warrant on a man in Juniata County.

The officers located the man at his home at approximately 9:00 pm. After being admitted into the home Constable Ulsh read the warrant. The man's wife became combative and attempted to prevent the officers from arresting her husband. As the officers attempted to arrest her as well the husband knocked the revolver from the State Police officer's hand and turned off the lights.

The suspects then opened fire on the officers, seriously wounding the officer and fatally wounding Constable Ulsh.

The man was arrested and charged with murder. He was convicted of murder but received a new trial.
