Special Deputy Marshal Harry Belluomini and Deputy Marshal Roy Frakes were shot and killed by a suspect who was attempting to escape from the federal courthouse in Chicago, Illinois. The suspect had removed his handcuffs with a smuggled key, assaulted a guard in the basement of the courthouse, and took her revolver. As he attempted to escape from the basement he encountered Deputy Marshal Frakes and shot him twice.

The suspect was then confronted by Special Deputy Marshal Belluomini and the two exchanged gunfire. Special Deputy Marshal Belluomini was mortally wounded and the suspect was seriously wounded. The man then committed suicide.

Special Deputy Marshal Belluomini had served with the Marshals Service for three years and had previously served with the Chicago Police Department for 32 years. He was survived by his wife, son and two daughters. His three children all went on to serve with the Chicago Police Department.
