Albert H. Brown

Patrolman Albert Brown was shot and killed while working the lockup at the 32nd District Station on Shakespeare Avenue.

Patrolman Brown was at the front desk when one of the prisoners was able to pick his cell lock and enter an outer office. The assailant stole a revolver from a desk drawer and as Patrolman Brown returned to the lockup area the killer attacked him and shot him in the abdomen. Although seriously wounded, Patrolman Brown continued to struggle with the assailant and regain control of the service weapon before the gunman escaped.

Patrolman Brown was transported to a local hospital and succumbed to the gunshot wound ten days later. He is survived by his wife and two sons.

The killer was apprehended two days later.
