Lloyd Herman Innes

Patrolman Lloyd Innes was shot and killed by a suspect he had shot and wounded during an arrest attempt fives years before.

In that incident, Patrolman Innes had awoken a man who was sleeping on a subway train. The man immediately grabbed Patrolman Innes' nightstick and severely beat him with it. Patrolman Innes was able to shoot and wound the suspect.

The suspect and Patrolman Innes lived in the same neighborhood, and the suspect repeatedly threatened him. On the day of the incident, the suspect shot and killed Patrolman Innes as he sat in his car in front of his house. Patrolman Innes' 5-year-old daughter watched the entire incident from a window in their home. She called out to her mother, who ran out and found her husband slumped over the wheel. He had been shot twice in the head and twice in the chest.

The suspect, 34, surrendered to police three days later. He was charged with murder.

Patrolman Innes was a United States Army Korean War veteran who served with the New York City Transit Police Department for eight years and was assigned to Transit District 30. He is survived by his wife and three daughters. One of his daughters joined the New York City Police Department.

He is buried at Long Island National Cemetery in Farmingdale, New York.
