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 was assigned to Transit District 30.

Patrolman Innes had previously served with the United States Army in Korea. He is survived by his wife and three daughters and is buried at Long Island National Cemetery in Farmingdale, New York.

In memory of a fellow transit officer. I was in the Flushing armory Transit Police academy when the instructors told us about Officer Ennis. The incident stuck in my head for my whole police career 30 Years. I still share the story with others in our profession.
Always remember the fallen.
