Sergeant Keith Levine was shot and killed as he tried to stop a robbery at an ATM.

Sergeant Levine was off-duty and with two others in a car when he saw a man being held up by another man and a woman at the Manufacturers Hanover Trust automatic teller machine alcove. Sergeant Levine got out of the car and chased the male suspect, who then shot and killed him.

The suspect had been out of prison for only a few days after serving 11 years for two manslaughter convictions. He was convicted of second-degree murder and sentenced to 15 years to life. He was denied parole in 2008 and again in 2010.

Sergeant Levine had served with the New York City Police Department for eight years and was assigned to the 20th Precinct. He is survived by his parents, brother, and sister.

Again in December, I'm thinking of you again. I'd give anything to be sitting in an RMP on 116th and B'way on a nice sunny day just one more time. The girls walking by, the smell of the restaurants, the conversation, the good times that we all had. You were taken too young. You were one in a million buddy and you are missed by all who knew you.
