Patrol Officer Neil Mooney succumbed to a gunshot wound sustained three days earlier after arresting two suspects for a minor charge of breaching the peace.

He searched one of the suspects and found a concealed revolver. However, the suspect had a second concealed revolver which Officer Mooney did not find. The suspect waited until he had an opportunity to shoot Officer Mooney and then did so.

The 21-year-old suspect was convicted of murder and sentenced to life.

Officer Mooney will for ever be remembered in our family. It has recently come to my attention he is my great grandfather. It is a great honor to know he is remembered in this fashion.
