Charles Lucy

Patrolman Charles Lucy was shot and killed while he and another officer attempted to serve a mental warrant on a man at a home on North Street.

As Patrolman Lucy reached the top of the stairs the man appeared and fired two rounds from a shotgun and Patrolman Lucy's face, killing him. Patrolman Lucy's partner, who was standing behind him, caught him with one hand and returned fire with the other hand.

The suspect fled into a room and was later shot and killed by other officers.

Patrolman Lucy was survived by his wife and three sons.

The family of Charles J Lucy (grand, great, great great and great great great grandchildren) will be gathering in Beacon, NY the weekend of 8/13/22 to memorialize the 100 year anniversary of my great grandfather's LOD. After visiting Beacon and various sites including the police station on Saturday, we will visit cemetery, attend mass scheduled for noon at St Joachim's church and then go to lunch on 8/14/22 (8/15 is a holy day and no masses were available).

All are welcome to join us as we would love the opportunity to meet any "lost" family.
