Henry Ebenhack

Patrolman Henry Ebenhack was shot and killed in front of 200 North Market Street while escorting a prisoner to jail.

He and another officer had arrested the man inside a bawdy house. As they walked him to jail the man began to argue with Patrolman Ebenhack and took a fighting stance. Patrolman Ebenhack struck him with a light whip as the other officer grabbed the man around the waist.

The subject then produced a revolver and shot Patrolman Ebenhack in the chest, causing a mortal wound. After shooting Patrolman Ebenhack, the man handed his revolver to the other officer and surrendered. He was subsequently convicted of second degree manslaughter.
